Fire Danger

Due to the extremely dry and warm conditions the past several days and today (Friday), the DNRE and USFS have put Fire Danger at High to Very High with areas east of I-75 being Very High. Cooler weather is expected for Friday, Saturday and Sunday but little precipitation (rain or snow) is expected in Northern Michigan. Burn permits are being issued, with restrictions, in a few counties. Here is the link for the DNRE:,1607,7-153-30301_30505_44539—,00.html
