November 28, 2016 - NOTICE

Notice to all Marathon Residents: Today we will be experiencing high winds, with sustained winds at 22mph gust up to 35mph. The fuel load in town and outlying areas is extremely dense and dry. Today makes good conditions for a grass fire to rapidly spread. MVFD asks that if you have plans to burn any brush to please wait until this front has passed and the winds have died down, also to be careful when parking your vehicles in high grass as the heat from your catalytic converter can start a fire. Please be vigilant if you see any signs of fire call BCSO dispatch at 432-837-5541 immediately. Thank you for your support, Stay safe out there!
