Nix the Bonfire Party, Close up the Barbecue, and Keep an Eye on That Cigarette Butt

Nix the Bonfire Party, Put Away the Barbecues, and Keep an Eye on That Cigarette Butt. As Universal Hub reports, more or less the entire state — heck, pretty much all of New England — faces some critical fire conditions today. It’s dry as a bone out there, windy as heck, and as of last night, firefighters have already been doing battle on at least four separate fires all across Massachusetts. Be smart!
