Message from Fire Warden

posted May 15, 2018, 6:29 AM by Bonnie Lovell

Greetings - 

A note from the Fire Warden:

The state, in conjunction with myself and some local firefighters, will be conducting a four acre prescribed burn in Paul Stream just past Bullthroat late Wednesday morning and into early afternoon.  Wondering if you could get the word out via the Association website so people who see smoke in the area will know it is a controlled burn situation and not an actual emergency.  Would appreciate it.  Thanks.
