Burning in violation of Grand County rules can have negative consequences
December 11, 2008
To the Editor:
This letter is to warn folks of the need to adhere to the rules set by the Grand County Department of Natural Resources.
Recently I was burning late and it caused quite a stir among the neighbors. Though the slash piles where in a clearcut and snow was permanently on the ground, the glow caused some neighbors to think a fire was out of control. This all could have been avoided if my burning would have ceased before dark. I am sorry to have affected my neighbors by burning late.
Hopefully there is a lesson to be learned by others out of this letter.
