The Dodge County Fire Chiefs Association and Dodge County Emergency Management have issued a Fire Danger Advisory
"Fire threat conditions county wide have reached dangerous levels," Fire Chiefs Association President, Jim Baus, said in a news release. "Calls for fire response to uncontrolled grass fires have reached unacceptable levels and calls continue to increase. The multiple weeks of moderate winds and dry conditions has made outdoor areas ideal for controlled open flames to quickly become out of control.
Director of Emergency Management, Joe Meagher advises that
"At this point, with the dry conditions, no open flame in the outdoors is safe," said Director of Dodge County Emergency Management, Joe Meagher. "No one should be conducting controlled burns unless they are directly supervised by your local fire department."
The news release sates July 4th fireworks pose a particularly dangerous situation, saying both on ground and aerial fireworks can spark a fire.
People have any questions regarding this advisory should contact their local fire chief.
