Willow Creek MD issues fire ban

The MD of Willow Creek issued a complete fire ban Monday.
Fire Marshal Roy Johnson said the fire hazard is “extreme” due to dry conditions.
“For the safety, health and welfare of people and for the protection of property, there shall be no burning until further notice,” Johnson said in a news release.
The fire ban includes all open fires, fire pits, burning barrels, fireworks and recreational fires.
“Fires are not allowed at any campgrounds,” Johnson added.
The exceptions to the ban are fires contained in cooking or heating appliances fuelled by fluids or gases.
