Hey Joe,

We need a burn ban also. Every grass/brush/ wild land fire we respond to lately has the originator saying the same thing afterward. "I was just burning a small pile and didn't think the wind was going to pick up and cause this". Good luck over there. TCSS

I'm surprised they haven't issued a ban already. Most everybody around you has.

Just FYI, These figures were released yesterday;
From January 1, 2009 to March 3

Acres Burned 109,903
Homes Threatened 1,804
Homes Saved 1,665
Homes Lost 61
Homes Damaged 8

Be careful out there.
