March 27, 2020- As spring rapidly approaches and its time to do a little cleaning, a friendly reminder from the Bagdad Fire Department , First, if your going to have an outdoor burn, please take the time to call so firefighters are not rushing to the scene unnecessarily, Second, only branches and tree limbs may be burned. We get several calls each year about agricultural operations i.e burning old hay, the process is not allowed under the Kentucky Division of Air Quality regulations.If in doubt, call us first, it will save everyone at great deal of time.
The CDC has recommended that no one hold public events at this time. Because of this, the fire department has decided to cancel the fish fry scheduled for March 20th and reschedule it for a later date. We would like to thank everyone for your continued support.
Bagdad,Ky. The Bagdad Fire Department responded with Waddy and US 60 Fire Departments on several roll bales of hay on fire in the 5400 block of Benson Road. It took firefighters less than 20 minutes to contain the blaze. Cause of the fire is under investigation. -END-

...Snow Showers This Evening...
A small disturbance over Illinois today will slide southeast into the Ohio Valley this evening. With temperatures starting out above freezing, precipitation associated with this feature should start out as rain showers or a mix of rain and snow showers before transitioning to all snow showers as temperatures drop this evening.
Rain showers may affect the first part of the Friday evening rush, with snow showers for the second half of the rush and into the late evening hours.
With warm ground temperatures, any accumulation will initially be on rooftops and grassy areas. After the sun sets and temperatures start to cool, slick spots will develop on roadways...especially elevated and untreated surfaces.
If headed out this evening, plan for the possibility of slick spots and taking some extra time to reach your destination
