reflections - on Fire & Burn Bans


Since most of the towns in our county, including Mineral Wells, do not have specific regulations on burning in the city limits, we are required to, at the very least, follow what our commissioners in the county have set down, not just as guidelines, but as law. With the breaking of that law come some serious fines.

I have heard recently of neighborhoods where people are setting backyard fires for recreational purposes, and then leaving the fires, expecting them to go out on their own, I guess. So far as I am concerned, that is not only against the law, as we have our 90-day burn ban on at present, but it is malicious mischief. Houses have burned down and lives have been lost all over the world because of carelessness.

I beg you, don’t set fires; follow the law; don’t be careless and accidentally cause hardship to yourself or to someone else.
