ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Il. (KMOX) – With brush fires a problem the past few weeks, open burning is now banned in St. Clair County.

Belleville Fire Chief Tom Pour says the county has seen nearly 200 brush fires so far this month.

While open ground fires are banned, barbeques and outdoor fire pits are not.
