No person is permitted to ignite, feed or allow an open fire on any private property under his or her control within the township, Gunnet states.

Forecasted low relative humidity and high winds create the potential for a dangerous fire to start in the area's woodlands and fields, and any outdoor fire under those conditions could put life and property at substantial risk.

Anyone who sees an outdoor fire in the township should immediately call 911 and report the location.
