CHFD urges caution with grills and other outdoor fires

As we enter the summer months, the Cherry Hill Fire Department reminds residents to take care when lighting grills, cigarettes and other outdoor fires. Dry conditions and strong winds create a high potential for brush, mulch and grass fires. The CHFD has responded to several mulch fires already in recent weeks, including two fires that begin as a result of a mulch fire that extended into the home’s interior. The home pictured at right received significant damage inside by a similar fire. For more important fire-safety tips and information, be sure to follow the Cherry Hill Fire Department on Facebook [https://www.facebook.com/CherryHillFire?fref=ts] and Twitter [https://twitter.com/CherryHillFire] .
