Dry grass poses wildfire risk for outdoor burning
Contact: Jeffrey Vasher

Home and property owners in much of the Lower Peninsula should avoid outdoor burning for the next few days because dry conditions could cause fire to spread.
Dead vegetation such as grasses, leaves and residual crops are dry and ignite easily, said Jeffrey Vasher, fire management specialist for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources’ Roscommon Incident Command Center.
“Everything right now is just so dry and dead from the winter,” he said. “It can burn quick and fast.”
The advisory applies to much of the state south of U.S. 10 to the state line, said Paul Rogers, fire officer supervisor in the DNR’s Plainwell office.
“There are going to be intermittent higher winds through the weekend,” Rogers said. “We’ve had several fires through the past days, and smaller structures have been lost.”
Rogers said it will be best to hold off burning until after rains arrive to soak the ground.
Those who plan to burn yard debris or other materials at any time should follow the burning rules of Brandon Township and the Village of Ortonville.
