Wayne Fire Chief urges caution when using fireworks
Wayne Fire Chief Phil Monahan is urging all area residents to use caution when using fireworks in the coming days.
The fire department responded to a call on Thursday (June 24) at the Boy Scout Park, also known as Roosevelt Park, near the Logan Creek. A tree was on fire. It was quickly extinguished and no damage ocurred to any buildings. No one was injured. However, Monahan says the cause was use of fireworks in the area.
