Fire Danger Level for Plymouth: Very High
Several fires over the last few days in Plymouth have been linked to both, the unseasonably dry conditions resulting in a high fire danger, and the carless disposal of smoking materials. When the fire danger is “very high”, fires will start easily from most causes. Fire will spread rapidly and quickly increase in intensity, right after ignition. Small fires can quickly become large fires and exhibit extreme fire intensity. These fires can be difficult to control and will often become much larger and longer-lasting fires. It is common for carelessly discarded cigarettes to be the cause of fires that rapidly spread into buildings especially during high fire danger conditions. The Plymouth Fire Department is asking everyone to report outside fires quickly and to be sure that all smoking material is fully extinguished.
