Burn Ban Means No Burning in Salem

Thursday, February 19, 2009

A brush fire got out of control in a field across the road from Hill's Auto Sales on Highway 62/412 in Salem Feb. 16. Someone was burning debris from the ice storm during a burn ban within city limits and it became unmanageable for one person. "This is what happens when people don't listen," Salem Fire Chief Heath Everett said. Until further notice, the citywide burn ban is still active. Photo by Emily McIntosh
