A warning was issued Friday about outside burning.

The fire chief for the Houston Rural Fire Association issued a warning Tuesday night to residents about outdoor burning.

Fire Chief Don Gaston requested people living in the rural area surrounding the City of Houston to use extra caution when doing any outside burning. Never leave a fire unattended, such as burning trash, he said.

Gaston said this part of Texas County has not received measurable rain for some time and with the extreme heat and dry conditions the level of fire dangerous has increased.

Persons with questions can call him at 417-967-2937.
