Preventing Human-Caused Wildfires
Throughout North Central Florida we are still about 11 inches below average for rainfall and the risk for fire danger is still very high.
There is no way to prevent fires caused by mother nature, but Florida's Division of Forestry wants to remind people of what they can do to cut down on the state's fire risk.
If you choose to burn a bon fire or camp fire you need to make sure it's at least 25 feet away from heavily wooded areas, your home and sheds, fifty feet away from roadways and at least 150 feet away from neighboring homes and buildings.
The most important thing people can do is stay with their fire and have necessary tools on hand to put it out if it begins to get out of control.
