Brush fires heat up with the weather
Local fire stations have had their hands full this season with brush fires.
And as this week marches on, rising temperatures and a lack of rain increase the chances of brush fires, which are considered to be any in which flames feed off ground fuel such as grass, mulch, dried leaves or branches.
“It’s almost like another season,” said John Green, battalion chief of the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Fire District. “Like when winter brings snow and vehicle damage, the summer heat brings some brush fires.”
