Caution urged with outdoor burning

There may not be a burn ban in place for Franklin County, but Fire Marshall Robert Zinn urges citizens to be cautious with outdoor burning and fireplace ashes.

There were two reports received this week of ashes from a fireplace or wood burning stove ignited fires. There were also six grass fires reported during the first six days of 2018. For a listing of fire safety tips, see the January 11 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
