Following this week’s one-acre brush fire on Upper Saranac Lake, state officials have issued a warning that fire danger in the Adirondack Park is “high.”
State forest rangers blame the situation on warm, dry weather. According to the statement, three fires have been reported in the last week, at least one caused by an improperly tended camp fire.
A total of eight acres have burned.
State officials are warning against brush burning, and also urge caution when using charcoal grills or other outdoor flames that could send off sparks.
