We’ve responded to 3 grass fires 🔥 which were all accidentally started from brush piles in the last week. Fire 🔥 danger is HIGH from super dry grass from the freeze this winter. Please be careful when burning. It’s best to plow down to dirt around your piles & cover with a grate if you are burning paper or cardboard to prevent airborne embers.
