Fire Department Responds To Illegal Burn

Chillicothe Fire Fighters were dispatched to a home at 202 2nd Street Thursday at about 9:30 pm.  While in route, they found flames visible in the 300 block of Vine St.  The crew arrived in about 5 minutes to find the person on the scene was cutting up a tree that had fallen in a storm earlier in the year for the owner and didn’t realize that burning was not allowed after dark.  The fire crew used approximately 50 gallons of water to put out the fire. They also informed the person of the requirements of the City Burning ordinance.

The fire crew was back in service in about 15 minutes.
