Towamencin Imposes Burn Ban
The burning ban applies to bonfires, camp fires, any kind of open burning and Chimineas, and he also urges people not to throw lit cigarette butts out of car windows.
“It’s actually illegal to do that. A police officer can stop them for that. It is a problem, especially in these dry conditions. You see a shower of sparks going up, and it only takes one of them to set the side of the road on fire.”
Pezzano also reminds home gardeners that mulch will burn, and they had a mulch fire just a few days ago that was probably started by a cigarette butt. He says cooking fires are allowed, but they urge people to use their barbecue grills with caution.
