Thursday morning Hot Spring County Judge Bill Scrimshire said he would probably know by Friday if he would issue a burn ban for the county. After Thursday's thunderstorms moved through, that decision became easier.
“I talked to people and everybody I talked to said they got some rain at their house,” Scrimshire said Friday. “I just wish we hadn't got some storms. It really downed some trees.”
Scrimshire said he hadn't heard much about damage around the county but a billboard on his property was damaged.
“That thing just kind of came through over North Malvern,” Scrimshire said. “We'll be monitoring this thing starting Monday if it doesn't rain anymore.”a
