Please don’t play with fire

Please don’t play with fire. So many folks are just burning leaves or trying to clean up their property with matches (or flamethrowers) that we and several other fire departments in our area have been hopping from fire to fire. No honeydo’s on our lists got done today as we responded to Saline and Pulaski county grass, and woods fires that escaped control.

Thanks to Lake Norrell FD and Crystal FD for the help on Congo Ferndale/West Colonel Glenn calls. Really glad to have Arkansas Forestry too for two calls today.

Please avoid burning anything outside right now. No, there is not a burn ban, but conditions are almost there with low humidity and unpredictable winds. Stay safe.
