A reminder from the Marion Volunteer Fire Department:
The 4 p.m. Burn Law is no longer in effect, as it ran through April 30th. It is still your responsibility to maintain watch over any open fire you start. If you do decide to burn brush and other debris, be sure there is little to no wind, that you are at least 300 feet away from a forest or other wooded land, and no other prohibited materials are a part of your burn pile, such as used tires, asphalt shingles, plastics or other petroleum based articles. Never use gas or other accelerants to start a fire; the vapors will lie low and may have an explosive action when lit. Never leave an open fire unattended, and make sure it is completely out before leaving it. Click on this link for more information and frequently asked questions about the 4 p.m. Burn Law:
