Weather forecast is for rain next week. Please don't burn until then. Protect your children's and your neighbor's children's lungs. Thank you.

How many people have been fined in all these alerts? If there are no repurcussions reported there won't be anyone paying attention to them.

An earlier news report said there have been hundreds of complaints about smoke. They will give you a warning after the first violation. Second time, you get a fine. Hopefully, people are reducing their pollution for the health of their community, not just to avoid the fines.
