The dry and windy conditions kept fire crews busy this weekend.

In St. Joseph County, Michigan, crews responded to at least eight brush fires beginning at 10 a.m. Saturday.

There have also been more than 20 brush fires in St. Joseph County, Indiana, in the past ten days.

That is even though a leaf-burning ban was passed for the county last fall.
The leaf burning amnesty dates for St. Joseph County in Indiana have not yet been announced.

There will be two weeks this year: one in the spring and one in the fall.
