Due to the change in weather conditions including cooler temperatures and moisture accompanying the spring weather, there has been a reduction in the overall fire hazard. The fire danger has been reduced to allow open burning to occur, consistent with local regulations.
The Brown County Fire Chief’s Association asks that residents obtain the necessary permits when required by local regulations. Brown County residents are reminded that they are responsible for burning activities which must be supervised at all times. Appropriate firefighting tools and a water hose must be available for suppression should it become necessary. The Chief's Association also asks residents to be careful when burning during windy conditions.
