Fire department issues burn warning

Petersburg Fire Department cautions everyone to be extremely careful and check conditions before burning anything, such as trash, which should be in a container, garden material, tree piles, etc.
Always have a hose connected to a water supply handy.
Never burn when a breeze is blowing.
The department asks everyone to be super vigilant while conditions are so dry. The state has been under red flag warnings a number of times during the past month.
