Don't Play With Fire

According to a National Weather Service map, half of New Jersey and large nearby portions of New York and Pennsylvania are under a Red Flag Warning. That means hot, dry, windy weather is setting the scene for brush fires. Any outdoor use of fire is problematic when this weather condition exists, so don’t use the barbecue even if it feels like mid-summer.

There was a news item in the past few days about a Frankford Township man who decided to set fire to a Christmas tree. The flames spread to nearby trees and firefighters had to respond. Why he was igniting the troublesome Tannenbaum after Easter is anybody’s guess.
