                                        Fire Danger is EXTREME

Dry Vegetation, Low Humidity and High Winds

Create Extreme Danger For Wildfire

VVFD's Smokey Bear sign

The combination of drought, low humidity and high winds has raised the level of wildfire danger to EXTREME.

The county-wide burn ban continues in effect, but be very careful with all sources of heat and sparks - power tools, welders, cookers, cigarettes, car exhaust systems - anything that could start a wildfire in our area.
