Officers handled several calls from concerned citizens about open burning. We recommend that people wanting to burn yard waste call the fire department to check whether there is a burn ban in effect before igniting your fire, especially if there are high winds. The weather is getting nice and there will be lots of residents cleaning their yards and burning the debris. Be sure and have rakes and extinguishing items available and don’t leave your fires unattended!
