The Kay County Board of Commissioners voted against declaring a burn ban for Kay County Thursday morning.

The board called an emergency meeting to discuss the issue and ultimately determined conditions in the county do not meet the criteria for a burn ban.

However, commissioners urge county residents to continue exercising extreme caution because of dry, windy weather conditions.
