Triple digit temperatures disappeared this week, but the danger has not. A lack of rain still means conditions are ripe for rapidly growing outside fires.
Because of these dangers, the Westfield City Council extended the open burn and personal fireworks ban through September 7, 2012.
The open burn ban prohibits all outside burns including campfires and agricultural burning. People are allowed to use their grill for cooking, but are advised to move their grills away from grass and dry vegetation.
