High fire danger will continue through the weekend. Gusty winds combining with lowered relative humidity values & dry fuels, sets the stage for fires to spread rapidly. All open burning permits have been suspended. The use of any flame or spark producing appliance outdoors is strongly discouraged.
If you are working on your yard this weekend, be sure to remove any dried vegetation that may have collected against the house or under the deck. When landscaping, consider using rock as a ground cover instead of combustible wood mulch next to the house. This will help protect your home from a fire if someone improperly discards a cigarette when smoking outside.
And remember, even under normal conditions the burning of yard waste is prohibited.
