Emergency management director reminds about burn ban

Wednesday, April 16, 2014 - Updated: 9:20 PM

Montgomery County Emergency Management Director Jeffery T. Smith reminds all residents of the statewide burn ban law in effect. This ban eliminates open burning until May 15.

Recently, Montgomery County firefighters have battled two large brush fires, causing acres of burned property and many exhausting man hours.

With nice weather forecasted and the urge for people to clean up their properties by burning brush, leaves, grass, etc., Smith advises of the potential danger.

Sheriff's patrols, local police, state Department of Environmental Conservation officers and troopers police are sent to all calls of open burning and will investigate the nature of any brush/grass fire.

Please familiarize yourself with the law and be courteous of others, Smith said.
