Local fire departments are nervous about this year’s Independence Day celebrations. Municipalities across Door County have canceled their displays, which has Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Chief Chris Hecht expecting more families to put on their own shows. That comes following a spring that had almost no grass fires, says Ephraim Chief Justin MacDonald.
Mother Nature is throwing a wrinkle into the equation with a long, hot stretch drying things out which could potentially lead to problems. The area last received significant rainfall on June 22nd. None is expected for at least the next seven days.
