Open Burning Prohibited in Rochester Today

57 second read

ROCHESTER — Chief Mark Klose reports that no outside burning is allowed in Rochester today. 

Due to critically high fire danger, a red flag warning is in effect and outdoor burning is prohibited throughout the city. Very dry air will result in low humidity which, paired with northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph, would allow fire to grow quickly.

The danger is expected to subside by this evening once forecasted rain arrives, but residents are asked to exercise extreme caution to prevent fires from starting throughout the afternoon.
