DNR Urges Residents To Check Fire Conditions

Department of Natural Resources officials are urging residents to check conditions before lighting a match.

The Michigan DNR responded to 28 wildfires over the weekend. Local fire departments handled additional fires as well.

Grassland conditions are dry where snow has melted, officials say.

This can lead to burning acres of forest land or even homes.
