Fall is here. For many, that means bonfires, fall fests, pumpkin decor and trick or treating. Safety is also important to remember during this time of year.
Fire Captain Wesley Mandino reminds citizens to to call their local fire department before having a bonfire and watch for strong winds.
“If you have a bonfire, You need to contact a fire department within your district to let them know you’re having one. Have a water hose close by and make sure there are no flammable liquids close by and that you’re not close to any structures like sheds or barns,”
