FIRE CALLS: Niagara Falls fire reports published April 26

(Continued)

• NOTE: With the warmer weather, firefighters have been responding to a flurry of open burning calls. Open burning, that is bonfires or burning of refuse, is prohibited in the city. The reason for that prohibition is the possibility that large or unattended fires could spread to nearby structures. There are also pollution concerns and smoke from these fires can be detrimental to the health of nearby residents who have respiratory problems. When firefighters are called to an open burn, they are required, by law, to put the fire out. A written warning is issued for the first offense. A second offense, at the same address, will result in the violator being issued a appearance ticket for City Court.
