Many people are ready for the periods of rain we’ve experience this week to come to an end. Mid-County Fire Protection District Chief Scott Frandsen is not one of those people.
Districts all across the Lake Area have been significantly busier than usual recently. Chief Frandsen says that, usually, they don’t feel the effects of brush fire season until late February and, more likely, into March. In January, Mid-County responded to 17 fire calls, with 11 being natural cover fires and 6 being structure fires.
