The City of Lansing has issued an immediate ban on any outdoor burning until further notice. This is cause of the extremely dry weather that is not good for burning. Also the Michigan DNR has put out a "Very High Fire Danger" advisory for Lansing and surrounding areas.

Another note, the ban does not apply to gas or charcoal grills and also does not apply for legal fireworks used between July 3rd - 5th. Though Delta is thinking about banning fireworks this holiday weekend.
