  • Wildfire danger is rated moderate in Phillips County and all but 16 eastern Arkansas counties. The National weather Service has advised that drought conditions are developing across the state. Fields are starting to show the effects. Even though fire conditions aren't as acute in northeast Arkansas, the heart of the state's farmland, growers are responding to the dry weather and irrigation is in full swing on all summer crops.
