WILDFIRE REPORT FOR MARCH 26, 2015
An early spring snowstorm squelched fire danger across southern Wisconsin last week. Fire danger went from Very High to snow covered overnight. As the weather warms, much of the snow has melted, once again revealing dead grass and fallen leaves. As we dry out, expect fire danger to increase. Stay apprised of fire weather conditions by checking the DNR fire danger web page each day after 11 am: dnr.wi.gov (search ‘fire danger’).
If you’re planning on burning leaves and brush as part of your spring clean-up routine, first check the Burning Restrictions web page to find out if a permit is required where you want to burn. Then be sure to check the day’s fire danger and burning permit restrictions BEFORE lighting that match!
People are asked to use extra caution when disposing of ash from fireplaces and wood heaters – make sure they are completely cold to the touch before dumping outdoors. Embers can remain smoldering in ash for long periods of time. Also, be extra cautious around power lines that may have come down on windy days. Always assume a downed power line is energized and dangerous.
Firewise Tip: Remove leaves and other debris that has accumulated next to buildings, in lawns, and on and under decks. Take special care to clean out dead leaves from evergreen shrubs near buildings. Move firewood at least 30 feet away from buildings.
