Fire safety for outdoor burning requires attention

Although the area fire departments have been relatively quiet this summer responding to fire calls, a local fire official shares some important tips on safely burning outside.  Brussels-Union-Gardner Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier says the excessively wet spring and summer has meant fewer calls for out-of-control fires in southern Door County but people should always stay with controlled burning. 



Wautier asks anyone who may be burning outside to keep in mind the wind conditions and to always fully extinguish any fire before leaving the area.   You can find more tips on safe burning below.
