Fall burn season opens

The fall burn season has opened, and Mill City volunteer firefighters remind the public to call the burn information number, 977-982-0011, before you burn. Burn information is usually updated by 8 a.m. each day.

Only trimmings from around the yard are permitted. Household garbage, plastics, tires and tree stumps are not allowed.

Be aware of your neighbors’ concerns. Many people have health issues that heavy smoke can aggravate. 

Be a good neighbor and go look before you call in any type of fire. Many times smoke may appear to be coming from the house or garage when it is a burn pile.

The fall burn season last until Dec. 15.
