Fire Danger Climbing

The heat is on–and, with no rain in sight–the fire danger continues to climb across the Alamo City.

“As the conditions continue to dry out every day we go without rain–and this extreme heat–things are getting really dry” the San Antonio Fire Department’s Woody Woodward told KTSA News.

“You’ve got to watch anything that involves fire–especially cigarettes–we still have folks that are lighting off fireworks. Of course, fireworks in the city limits of San Antonio are illegal” Woodward added, pointing out a recent number of fires that were caused by “undetermined” means.

“What that means is it very likely could be cigarettes–or, maybe a firecracker or something like that which gets caught up near an apartment building or in some dry brush” Woodward said.

The bottom line: everyone needs to be very careful right now when it comes to fire–and what can spark flames.
