    The fire dept. went around today and told people to put out their fire. If these people did not call to get a burning permit, did they get a ticket? What’s the sense of having rules/laws if they are not enforced.

    Tickets are not given by the county, but rather by Forestry. We will be checking on that. Also, permits are not technically given. All one does is call the Forestry Commission and then basically says they’re going to burn. They are supposed to monitor conditions like wind and drought, and if they don’t and their fires get away, they can be fined by Forestry.
