Menomonee Falls lifts burn ban

July 28, 2012

Menomonee Falls - The burn ban in the Village of Menomonee Falls has been lifted due to days of successive rainfall this week.

Residents are asked to follow normal outdoor burning regulations.

The Menomonee Falls Fire Department monitors conditions closely, gathering information from both the weather service and the state to determine how much moisture is in the ground.

"It's also our best judgment," said Assistant Fire Chief Richard Burgess.

Burgess urges village residents to continue using extreme caution because although the burn ban is lifted, there are still dry areas that exist throughout the area.

"If you do any outside burning or use a charcoal grill, you could still have a grass or wildland fire," he said. "Use caution."

In addition to asking residents to use caution when burning outside, Burgess also asks that people stay hydrated in the extreme heat to avoid related injuries.
