Warm Weather Creates Higher Fire Risk

Temperatures in our area reached 70 degrees Thursday and people were out enjoying the warm weather.

But that also has fire departments worried as the dry conditions are causing a greater fire risk.

"What we want to see is people taking precautions. Just use common sense and not have that recreational fire or have it moistened down quite a bit," said Jason Whitney of the Rochester Fire Department.

Whitney said conditions are comparable to a summer drought and said rain is needed lower the fire risk.
