The Morden Fire Department has been kept busy these days.

Fire Chief Andy Thiessen says the dry weather we've experiencing has contributed to this.


He says they recently had 5 grass fires in a matter of 28 hours.


Thiessen says most of those were not even intended fires.


He says sparks had landed in the grass and ignited from there.


Thiessen adds regardless of whether you're burning off a field or having a fire in your back yard, use common sense and keep an eye on the sparks.
