Ban in Lake Country broadened
The burn ban in the City of Delafield and Villages of Nashotah and Chenequa has been extended to include fireworks, including "flares, sparklers and other similar flammable object," according to a news release from Lake Country Fire and Rescue.
Local police will actively monitor the ban, according to the release, which was released by Fire Chief Jack Edwards.
Edwards noted that the professional fireworks show in Delafield on the Fourth of July will be held as planned, but if a decision is made to cancel it, updates will be available on the municipal websites and Lake Country Fire and Rescue's Facebook page.
He emphasized that the burn ban means there is to be no burning of any kind, including burn barrels, campfires or any other source of open flame. Grilling is still permitted, but charcoal should be properly stored and completely extinguished before disposing.
