Firefighters respond to cover fire | Saline Co. now under ‘burn advisory’

Wednesday, November 18, 2020
Marshall firefighters respond to a cover fire south of Route H in rural Marshall Wednesday afternoon, Nov. 18. According to Marshall Fire Chief Tony Day, there is a “burn advisory” in place for the rest of the day due to high winds and low humidity. And the National Weather Service website states a wind advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. for Saline and nine other Missouri counties. Winds could gust up to 45 mph, which could blow around unsecured objects, cause tree limbs to be blown down, and possibly cause a few power outages. The cause of Wednesday’s cover fire has not yet been confirmed, and The Marshall Democrat-News will provide more information when it becomes available.
