It's been extremely hot and dry over the last couple weeks. Due to these conditions, a burn ban has been put in place for all of Saginaw Township.

According to WNEM, outdoor burning of any type is strictly prohibited until further notice. Gas and charcoal grills are still permitted, but residents should use caution.

We'll let you know when the ban is lifted. Until then, don't be an idiot and throw your cigarette butts out the window. I hate when people do this anyway but now is especially a bad time to be a littering jerk.
