Officials in Missouri are concerned about accidental fires being started in certain areas because of the high heat index and dry weather.
They have sent out a warning that even the smallest spark such as a cigarette can start a fire and with a heat index over 100, it can make for a dangerous situation.
Officials stated that no fire should be started until the state see rain, but the upcoming forecast looks very dry. Another fact that was pointed out is that if a fire is started, even if its unintentional, a person can be charged with arson if it damages another person’s property.
