Although it is officially Fall, with more hot weather in the forecast fire officials ask you to look for potential fire hazards on or around your property.  Here are some items to check for:

 

  • Trash, debris, and other combustible materials that create a fire hazard must be removed from the property.

 

  • Properties of one acre should be cleared of hazards (weeds) in their entirety. 
  • Properties of more than one acre should have one hundred feet clearance from structures and fifty feet clearance around the perimeter. 
  • Roadways and/or driveways shall be cleared of vegetation to at least the width of the roadway plus ten feet on each side, and a height of thirteen and one-half feet above the road surface. 
  • Storage of firewood material shall be located a minimum of thirty feet from structures and separated from the crown of trees by a minimum of fifteen feet. 
  • Property owners should clear any combustible material, weeds, brush, trees or other vegetation (including mulch) that is, or could become, dry and could be capable of transmitting fire.
