MDC News Coordinator Joe Jerek says other ways to prevent wildfires are to be careful with vehicles over dry grass or leaves.

Think twice before driving into a grassy field, never park over tall grass that can touch the underside of a vehicle and when driving off road always carry an approved fire extinguisher.
