Present Fire Dangers Told By Official ^Dwelling on (he theme of Fire Prevention Week that "Fire feeds on careless deeds," Chief W. T. Ekwall feels that this particular tini of the year is one when the most care is needed. Kven though recent showers have temporarily lessened the hazard of grass and brush fries, that situation will soon be revived, and especially as soon as leaves start falling more rapidly from <trecs. An additional peril is combined with Ihc chore of house cleaning Normally housewives burn a col lection of ilems allowed to ac cumulate over a period of months. While the woman of the house is extra busy at that time, the chief urges extreme care in burning trash. He points out that the best way is to use one of several different types of burners that keep the fire confined and prevents sparks from spreading. Choose Location The location for starting a fire is important loo, Ekwall 'points out. Even a trash burner should be away from other objects. Fires should be started in isolated areas and when an open blaze exists, the firsc should be watched until it is out. A garden hose provides a quick and an easy way to keep a fire from spreading. The chief asks that a hose be hooked to a water tap before a fire is even started and kept at hand in case it is needed. Instead of letting a bonfire solve the problem of disposing of grass, weeds and other vegetation, fire officials urge that such debris be raked into a pile and then Ignited. If the person starting the fire does not own a hose, pails of water should be set nearby and wet brooms at arm's length in the case a fire appears to be getting out of hand.
