Fireworks and Open Burning restrictions

Due to the high temperatures and low humidity expected in foreseeable future, your Genola Town firefighters are asking all Town residents to use the Genola Town park to light their fireworks. Looking around town you will notice high weeds that are ready to start with just a spark. 
If you use the Genola Town Park please clean up after yourself and make sure that all hot embers are dead out.
No Open Burning will be allowed until further notice for the same reason.

Travel Trailer Fire

On June 26th we were paged to a brush fire on West Mt. Enroute we learned it was actually a travel trailer that was on fire, we arrived and found the owner had extinguish the fire using 2 dry extinguishers and some extra water in jugs for his trailer. After further investigation the cause was a birds nest in the vent cover for the propane/electric fridge.
