LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Forestry Commission has lowered the wildfire danger in Arkansas from extreme to high because of scattered rain and elevated humidity values. Officials say open burning is still discouraged since fires can escape and containment can be difficult when the danger is high. According to the commission web site, about 50 counties are under a burn ban. Officials say they are encouraging people to obey the bans and use care with any outdoor burning that may spark a fire, including lawn mowing.
