Shelby County Fire Danger Index is “High” this weekend
October 5th, 2012 by Ric Hanson
Shelby County Emergency Manager Bob Seivert says the Fire Danger level is in the “HIGH” category through Monday, Oct. 8th. The index was lowered from the “Extreme” category due to the cool and damp conditions. Even so, controlled Burns should only be conducted with the knowledge of the local Fire Chief. The next update from Shelby County with regard to the Fire Danger Index, is expected to be released on Monday. Seivert had said earlier, he expects the Fire Danger to remain High, throughout the month of October.
