The first cold snap of the season left its mark in Levy County with dry ground cover and leaves.
The threat of wildfires exists and the continued drought increases problems. Here are some reminders from the Florida Division of Forestry and from the Chiefland Fire Rescue Department concerning outside burning:
* Agriculture, silviculture, land clearing, pile and acreage burning all require authorization from the Division of Forestry.
* Before starting any outside burning, contact the local fire department for any burn bans that may be in effect.
