Mid-County Fire Protection District has responded to or assisted with several fires in the last 48 hours. That includes some fires that Chief Scott Frandsen says were intentionally set on Wednesday.
That fire was the second intentionally set fire in that area within half an hour. It damaged a home and two storage sheds, while destroying another shed and an abandoned trailer. Thursday was just as busy.
Once again, you’re reminded to observe no-burn notices, refrain from burning in dry conditions with low humidity and high winds, and take all safety precautions during an open burn. You can be held liable for any damages caused by a fire that gets out of control.
