The dangerously dry conditions have sparked another burn ban in Southwest Florida.

Glades County is the latest county to ban outdoor burning. Until further notice, all outdoor burning in the county is banned.

The ban includes burning yard waste, fireworks, sparklers and any other outdoor ignition sources.

You can still barbecue or have small campfires as long as they’re in a grill or container.

The county asks to be mindful of wind, dry ground and brush.

Charlotte and Hendry counties are also under burn bans.
