Fire Marshal warns against outdoor burning

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)--The state's fire marshal is warning people about the dangers of outdoor burning this fall.

This warning comes after two people died while burning leaves in October. A Cedar Falls man died after he was burned when he threw gasoline on a fire. And a Keokuk man died after his clothes caught on fire.

The fire marshal says conditions may seem ideal for burning but the recent dry weather has caused fires to get out of hand.
