BENTON COUNTY, Wash. -- As the summer goes on and the temperatures continue to rise, there's no where for the fire danger to go, but up.

On Monday, the Benton County Fire Danger went from very high to extreme.

When the fire danger hits extreme, no outdoor burning is allowed. When it comes to agriculture burning, you need a permit from a fire chief.
