Dry spell hits just in time for Independence Day

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.
