Station 6-1 was dispatched to the area of 81 Church Street for a brush fire. 6101, 614 and 613 arrived and located an illegal burn in the back yard. Crews stretched a 1′ booster line and extinguished the fire.
As the weather changes and it is becoming nicer out we are seeing an increase in the number of illegal burns in the town. Please before you light your next fire pit and check the Township ordinance (provided below). This ordinance was placed into effect for every ones safety.
