People Continue to Burn Despite Fire Danger Warnings

Posted: Updated:

We are under high fire danger warnings, yet some people are ignoring the warnings and losing control of their burn piles.

This morning crews had to fight yet another fire in the woods just north of Harrison in Clare County.

This fire started in fire ring and was being watched.

Despite those precautions, more than an acre burned when it got out of control.

Crews were able to contain the fire and save the three buildings nearby.
