OUTDOOR BURNING PRIVILEGES ARE SUSPENDED
1) 1) Moderate drought conditions exist & are expected to worsen with out significant rainfall. 2) Only slight rain chances are anticipated in the near future. 3) Due to these current weather conditions, a potentially dangerous situation now exists - to the public & to our firefighters.
2) Therefore, in an attempt to prevent or lessen chances of a potentially dangerous situation from developing, the privileges of outdoor burning are now suspended with in the City of Magee. All outdoor burning is prohibited - including open pit fires, camp fires, or fires in containers. This does not include legitimate barbecue grills & smokers. The suspension of all outdoor burning will remain in effect until further notice. In the event, a significant rainfall occurs, I will re-evaluate the situation promptly. This suspension will be lifted, allowing outdoor burning to resume, when the weather moderates & conditions improve.
3) Thank you for your cooperation.
Charles Valadie – Fire Marshal
