A man who burnt leaves on a no-burn day is lucky to be alive. The fire on State Road BB near Montreal came on a day with a red-flag warning – dry conditions and high winds. Local firefighters told people not to burn…but one man chose to anyway, and it nearly killed him.
Chief Scott Frandsen says when you ignore the no-burn warning, you take your life in your own hands.
You’re reminded again to always check with your fire protection district before doing any outdoor burning.
