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.”
