Spring is considered the time of year where people start the process of cleaning up after winter storms, creating fire safe zones around their homes, and dispose or burn debris. Did you know that last year 80% of DNR’s statistical fires were caused by humans? Did you know that last year 33% of human caused fires are associated with debris burning?
