State Fire Marshal Issues Warning of Extreme Fire Danger

STATE FIRE MARSHAL ENCOURAGES EXTRA STEPS FOR A SAFE July 4th CELEBRATION

State Fire Marshal Larry Flowers has issued a Warning of Extreme Fire Danger and is urging Ohioans to

take extra safety precautions this Independence Day holiday.

“Any spark is a danger right now,” says Marshal Flowers. “These hot, dry conditions and the forecasted

25 mile per hour wind gusts is a recipe for danger. A spark, on dry grass, fanned by winds, can quickly

get out of hand and put lives and property at risk.”
