(U) LITTLE ROCK, AR-Nearly 600 acres of land across the state were burned in wildfires over the weekend and this Monday sparking a reminder for people to use safe burning practices. Wildfire season in Arkansas can take place anytime there is low humidity -- 20 to 30s. This usually does not take place until the end of February, but for the last two years, the Arkansas Forestry Commission said warm weekends had arrived right around the Martin Luther King holiday weekend. AFC advised homeowners to check for gusty winds over five miles per hour before they burn, always plan to stay with the burn throughout its duration, avoid burning near other vegetation, always keep a water hose close by and to dig dirt barriers around their sites.
