Open Burning Rules Still an Area Wide Concern

By Carol A. Gasser Moore

LANIER COUNTY, Georgia – Last week a real live example of why open burning rules are important to follow occurred.  A Lakeland resident chose to use a burn barrel and burn some manmade materials.  The resident used a burn barrel and, as the Lanier County News learned, included a battery as part of the man made material he intended to burn.  Worse, the citizen used an accelerant, gasoline, to expedite burning of the man made waste.

Detailed information in the January 19th edition of the Lanier County News!

    Not real smart thing to do. Especially the gasoline. The capers will spread and ignite
