Despite rains, fire safety vital

September 23, 2014

Recent rainfall has helped to diminish the the threat of wildfires in the area but firefighter officials caution the public to stay diligent when it comes to fire safety.

“We are in the best shape we’ve been in probably the last 10 years right now for not having any wildfires, but when this dries out, we’ve got maybe 30 to 40 days and then it looks like this year we are going to hit a quick freeze,” said Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan. “After that freeze, all this high fuel is going to die. Anytime you burn, you need to be careful.”
