Seminole County is unusually dry this time of year.

That's why county officials have put a burn ban in place for a minimum of seven days, as the drought index is currently higher than 500.

In other words, no bonfires, no campfires or burning yard debris – unless you want to accidentally burn your neighborhood down.

Seriously, that would be an awful thing to do.

So don't burn anything. Nothing. Nada.
