Muncie and Delaware County officials have declared a local disaster emergency because of the dry weather conditions.  The emergency declaration says the county is at risk of widespread fire hazards.  It puts a burning ban in place for the entire county until June 26th.  Signed by Muncie Mayor Dennis Tyler and the Delaware County Commissioners, it also asks people not to set off personal fireworks and to be very careful with campfires.
