High temps and no rain increase wildfire risk for Horry County

It's almost exactly 2 years ago that we were just starting to recover from the Barefoot wildfires that started in North Myrtle Beach.

If you insist on smoking, please don't throw your cigarette butts out the window. If you insist on burning debris in Horry County, you are required to notify the S.C. Forestry Commission. Most local municipalities explicitly ban burning. 

I'd personally prefer you not do either. Ever.

No official warning has been issued yet. The Sun News has more information about the pending drought conditions and precipitation outlook. Read it here.
