Fire Safety Also A Concern East River

July 10, 2012, 7:33 AM by Austin Hoffman

Fire Safety Also A Concern East River
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Dry conditions have turned grass and wood into materials that could easily start a fire, which is why officials are asking people to still think about fire safety.

Much of South Dakota is considerably behind average in rainfall totals; the Sioux Falls area is nearly four inches below average in rainfall since June.

That means anything that could create a spark could also lead to flames such as flicking a cigarette outside or parking on dry grass where a hot muffler could spark a fire.

While corn crops are taller than normal, many crops are also starting to curl up.  If the weather patterns don't change, it could be a tough harvest for many farmers.
