Campfire safety reminders before Memorial Day weekend
SEATTLE -- Memorial Day weekend is almost here and a lot of people plan to spend it outdoors. Q13 talked to the experts at PEMCO Insurance about how a campfire can turn into something dangerous. "You know 10 years ago, wildfires were a end of summer, east of the mountain problem and now that's changed," said Kristine Zewe, an Underwriting Quality Analyst at PEMCO Insurance. "It's now a spring, summer and fall problem and the entire state is at risk of wildfire. In fact last year we had nearly half a million acres burn and 1,700 wildfires."
