This time it's not because you burned yourself.

Governor Cuomo has extended a ban on outdoor fires. The ban was actually going to be lifted today (5/14), but now it goes through May 21st, reports the Times Union.

It's so dry out, that's why. So how can you help in not lighting the fuse on the dry ball of ready to burst into flames that is the Capitol Region? Don't start any fires. Seriously, no enjoying fire, cooking over fire, or anything else that has the word fire in it. You need to fire someone at your job? Gotta wait til the 21st.
