    June 28, 2016 - WHMI 93.5 FM: Livingston County Fire Chiefs have declared a Burn Ban for most of the county. Hamburg Township Fire Chief Mark Hogrebe, who is also the Regional Director of the Southeastern Michigan Association of Fire Chiefs, says that several departments have come together in issuing the ban due to the extremely dry environmental conditions. He says that several areas have witnessed small rapidly spreading field fires due to open burning or ignition of fireworks. The departments taking part include Hamburg Township, Green Oak Township, Putnam Township, Unadilla Township, the areas covered by the Hartland/Deerfield Fire Authority and Howell Area Fire Authority as well as Northfield Township in Washtenaw County. Properly permitted recreational fires in fire pits will still be allowed for those residents wishing to have a recreational fire during the holiday weekend, but that everyone is advised to use extreme caution. Those planning on using fireworks in their celebrations are advised to keep in mind that the conditions are very dry and make sure they are shooting over a safe area and have a water source available. Hogrebe says the Burn Ban shall remain in effect until environmental conditions improve and area fire departments order its removal. (JK)
