Several mid-Michigan communities have issued burn bans because of the recent hot, dry weather.

In Genesee County, the latest additions to the list include Mount Morris Township, Grand Blanc and Grand Blanc Township.

Some communities in Saginaw County also already have burn bans in place and there are county-wide bans in Bay and Midland counties.

The restrictions will continue until further notice.

COURTESY OF THE WILLIAMSTON THEATRE

The town of Williamston, in Ingham County, has a population just under four thousand people. Like many Michigan towns of its size, its downtown historic district boasts a variety of retail and dining establishments.

But nestled among the brick storefronts is a somewhat less-familiar sight: an 88-seat black box theater.
