Burn Danger 

Lots of sun this weekend, but there was plenty of wind as well…that has firefighters concerned about grass and woods fires.

On Saturdaynight, Waterville fire crews responded to several grass fires on the County Road.

Bangor Assistant Chief Scott Bostock says now is the time for homeowners to start their cleanup…that means plenty of folks are doing their spring burning.

Bostock says it’s important that folks get the proper permits before burning anything…and you always need to keep an eye on the wind.

Assistant Chief Bostock says Bangor fire is now issuing season-long permits for outdoor fireplaces, now that they’re so popular.

All you have to do is call the Department at 992-4700…they’ll send someone out to inspect the fireplace and the site, and will then issue a permit for the summer.
