General Guidelines for Burning: Always use caution when burning. Any type of fire should be continuously attended. Do not go in the house or walk away from a burning, or even a smoldering fire. Keep children and animals away. Have a hose or bucket of water immediately available to extinguish the fire, and ensure the fire is completely out before leaving or retiring for the night. Recreational fires have caused numerous neighborhood conflicts over the years. Please be considerate of your neighbors--especially elderly neighbors with health conditions--when windows are open in the summer or when you see clothes drying on a line. The fire department reserves the right, and is required by law, to ask you to extinguish any type of fire if it causes a nuisance in the neighborhood. If you have any questions concerning the ordinance, or to issue a complaint, please call the department at (574) 372-9502.
