Snows melting, spring winds are blowing and the fields and cattail marshes are dry. And that means it
just  takes a spark, a tossed cigarette, an unsafe burning of brush, a downed power line or an act
 of nature in the form of a lightning bolt to kick off our spring wildfire season.  Few things are certain
 in the uncertain world of nature - excluding fire.  The time for situational awareness and caution is now.
If your city or township does not allow burning: Do not burn! If they do, be sure you have a burning
 permit and follow the rules. One rule is omitted from most regulations: Common sense. Use it.
The Oakland County wildfire season is at the doorstep.
