WLNS TV 6 reports that due to the very dry conditions, a ban is in place for recreational fires and brush burning due to the "very high fire danger". Even if you've been issued an open brush burning permit, consider it suspended until we get some rain.

Lansing and Lansing Township say that this does not apply to grilling - just fires.

Heads up - it's so dry right now that they may even ban personal fireworks for the holiday weekend. Get more info on that here.
