WILDFIRE Danger is HIGH!
Just a reminder that weather conditions right now make it EXTREMELY dangerous to burn outside. Fire departments all across Ohio are responding to grass fires from people carelessly and illegally burning today and over the weekend.
Ohio’s law states that it is ILLEGAL to burn outdoors in March, April and May between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm.
Higher temperatures, lower humidity, and plenty of dry fuel (Leaves, grass, etc) can carry a fire out of control quickly. Here are more details:
Please be careful!
