Posted on Thu, Nov 01, 2018


The wildfire danger rating is LOW but please continue to use caution when using off-highway vehicles and warming fires. Clear dead grass from your OHV and put out your campfire by soaking and stirring it. A fire that is not properly extinguished can smoulder until spring and surface as a wildfire when conditions are right. Safe burning practices are always in season.
