Fire safety stressed for holiday weekend

With Labor Day weekend bringing thousands of visitors to Door County for camping and outdoor enjoyment, local fire department officials are reminding people to adhere to basic fire safety when having any campfires.  Brussels Union Gardner Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier advises campers to make sure fires are allowed on the property and to make sure a fire pit is provided.  He shares one tip to avoid any potential disasters.



Wautier says to be aware of wind conditions and to never use flammable fluids when starting a fire.  Always have water handy and make sure to fully extinguish the fire when leaving the campfire area.  You can find a list of campfire safety tips below.
