Current Burning Conditions
Important Message: With more people home right now during this COVID-19 pandemic, please consider voluntarily limiting wood burning (indoors/outdoors). Breathing smoke affects the respiratory system and is especially harmful to sensitive populations including youth, seniors, and those with underlying heart and respiratory conditions. Thank you! #InlandStrong #StayHomeStayHealthy
