Bedford Township institutes open-burning restriction

TEMPERANCE - Bedford Township Fire Chief John Bofia imposed a township-wide ban on open burning yesterday because of the same dry conditions and heightened fire danger that prompted a statewide ban Wednesday on all public lands.

Chief Bofia's order went into effect immediately and prohibits open burning of debris in the township. Bedford Township has a burning ordinance that allows local residents to burn yard debris and other items on weekend days until 6 p.m.

The Toledo area has recorded just over a half-inch of precipitation this month, compared to the April average of 3.24 inches.
