Wildfire danger is still present in our area, even though you might not think it's a possibility.

Maine Forest Rangers and Maine's fire service reminds the public that even though it is not summer, the wildfire threat still exists.

This picture is from a 5 acre wildfire that occurred in the southern Aroostook County town of Weston this week.

With dry fuels, low relative humidity and blustery days, fires can spread quickly and threaten structures. Please be careful with the disposal of wood stove ashes and ALWAYS get an open burning permit.

The person who caused this fire did not and now has an arraignment in district court.
