Safer outdoor burning requires constant attention

As outdoor fires become more prevalent in June, area fire departments are warning residents to use extreme caution when conducting any brush burning.  Safety recommendations before you start backyard debris burning include keeping all fires a minimum of 75 feet from all buildings, never using a flammable liquid to start a fire and to check for local burning bans or restrictions.  Brussels-Union- Gardner Assistant Fire Chief Jim Wautier adds another important safety tip for any outdoor burning.

 

 

No burning bans are currently in place in Door or Kewaunee Counties but you should obtain a burning permit from your local municipal official.  You can find a complete list of safety tips for the open burning season with the link below.
