U.P. Fire Danger Still Extreme

This may sound like a broken record at this point.

But the entire U.P. is still under an outdoor burning ban, and the fire danger is still extremely high.

And with little to no rain on the horizon, the conditions aren’t likely to change until after Memorial Day weekend.

Most areas of the U.P. are considered to be in a drought or near-drought situation.

With the record warmth and extreme dry conditions continuing, the DNRE says every precaution needs to be taken.
