CONTENT OF GRASSES, AND OTHER DRY ORGANIC MATERIAL ON THE GROUND,
INDICATE THAT THE PROBABILITY OF A FIRE OCCURRENCE IS LOW.
OUTDOOR BURNING UNDER THESE CONDITIONS CAN USUALLY BE PERFORMED
WITH REASONABLE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS.

THE OUTLOOK FOR TUESDAY AFTERNOON, THE GRASSLAND FIRE DANGER
INDEX WILL REACH THE LOW CATEGORY.
