Tall Dry Grasses In Coal Creek Canyon

Tall Dry Grasses In Coal Creek Canyon.

We have had a wet year, which has meant reduced fire danger to this point. It also means that vegetation and grasses have grown tall. As the year continues these grasses cure (they die and dry out) and this cured grass can act like tinder; spreading fire rapidly.

Have you kept your grasses short around your property? Mowed your lawns? Weed-whacked? Don’t let cured grasses pose a threat to your property. Keep grasses short, especially the closer they are to structures.

The forecast for the next several days is calling for higher than normal temperatures and low humidity bringing increased fire danger.
