Be careful, take precautions and don’t burn unless you absolutely have to — that’s the word from officials as dry windy conditions keep the fire danger high.
While Citrus has not experienced the recent large wildfires that hit Marion County, conditions here are ripe, according to Fire Chief Larry Morabito.
“We really haven’t had any significant rain.” Morabito said. “Things are very dry. I would urge residents to be very wary of burning and not to burn at all unless absolutely necessary.”
