HOWELL, Mich. (AP) - Several Livingston County communities have issued rules on outdoor burning and officials are asking people to be cautious with fireworks over the July Fourth holiday due to dry conditions.

The Livingston Daily Press & Argus of Howell reports (https://bit.ly/29hfXwq ) Sunday that a burn ban is in effect in Hamburg, Green Oak, Putnam and Unadilla townships.

Leaf and yard waste burning, as well as recreational fires, should be postponed until conditions improve.

Fire officials in dozens of Lansing-area communities last week banned open burning.

People celebrating with fireworks are asked to monitor where burning material lands and be prepared to extinguish small spot fires with garden hoses and buckets of water.

Fireworks also should be lit a safe distance from houses, vehicles and other people.
