Lexington Fire Dept. Issues Dry Weather Alert
Posted on Mar 24th, 2014


Carelessly discarded cigarettes seem to have been the main culprit. Conditions this weekend are dry, and even a small mulch fire can spread rapidly to a building if it is unnoticed. While enjoying the weekend, please be mindful of the following:
 
Ensure that smoking materials are completely extinguished and discarded in a safe manner. Never discard lit cigarettes, especially from cars or in areas with vegetation.
 
Avoid recreational or open cooking fires in dry, windy weather. Use a grill with a cover instead.
 
Never leave any grill, recreational or cooking fire unattended for any reason.
 
Ensure that cooking fires and grills are put out by dousing them with water before you go inside or leave the picnic or camping area.
 
Regardless of the season, ensure that children know not to play with matches and lighters. Make sure children know what to do in the event of a fire.
