Hot Weather Puts Counties on Alert
MID MISSOURI - Hot and dry weather put Pettis and Saline counties under a "red flag warning" Thursday, and now the National Weather Service is issuing the same warning for five more counties.
People in Macon, Chariton, Randolph, Howard, and Cooper counties should keep an eye out for small fires and avoid setting controlled blazes. Dave Clippert of the Emergency Management Agency for Pettis County says he's already seen a few brush fires get out of hand.
