Do the the lack of rain and high temperatures, yards, field, medians and ditches are prime tinder for discarded cigarettes or tossed fireworks. Tuesday, July 10, firefighters extinguished a burning yard on Crown Pt. and chased several fires in the ditches along Belvidere Rd. Earlier in the morning, they also responded to smoke in a home where the furnace motor was the culprit.

Below, Firefighters responded to a home on Lotus Ln. where they found a motor on a furnace was smoking. A/C's have been running almost non stop. Have you checked your air filter on your furnace? Not only can you save money operating your A/C system, but a badly clogged air filter can also cause motors to overwork on your furnace.
