Dothan and the surrounding area's lingering dry weather have prompted the Dothan Fire Department to issue a burn ban.
The order was signed Monday.
Officials say conditions are extreme and creating a potential atmosphere for wildfires.
The burn ban will remain in effect until enough rain is received to eliminate the problem.
A fire alert means permits for outdoor burning are restricted.
