Fire restrictions in Knee Hill County and Special Areas Number 2 have been issued.
Weather conditions following this week has made grass and other plants dry and flammable.
"We have extreme dry conditions," said Fire Chief of Special Areas, Glen Durand. "Our grass is fully cured so it's at a state where it can easily burn."
Durand suggests to farmers and those using recreational motor vehicles such as quads to clean off the machines being used to ensure there are no accelerators present when operating this machinery and to take preventative measures.
"We highly encourage people to have a water extinguisher," he said. "It may help. If you don't have one, well, you don't have anything that may help if you do start a fire."
A, B and C extinguishers are not recommended for grass fires as Durand states the moisture from a water-based extinguisher will help battle dry grass from catching on fire.
Knee Hill County has also put fire restrictions in place.
"No open burning. Everything has got to be in a pit," explains Fire Chief of Carbon, Jody Kranzler. "No firework or anything of the sort outside of the villages."
Kranzler and Durand both commented on the sureness on how face a grass fire can start and without preventative measure like pre-cleaning vehicles or being equip with a water-based fire extinguisher, fires can spread rapidly forces an emergency response in a preventable situation.
