A day after Elizabethtown, Radclif and Vine Grove issued a ban on open burning, rural residents received the same alert.

Hardin County government issued a burn advisory Tuesday instructing residents to refrain from open and outdoor burning.

Residents also are advised to use caution around combustible materials and when handling fireworks.

The bans could remain in effect for some time with weather forecasts indicating a particularly brutal stretch of heat moving into the area that would place temperatures at or above 100 degrees for several days.
