Contact the fire department before burning
There have been several reports of small fires burning leaves and twigs around town. Unless permitted by the Cameron Volunteer Fire Department this is a fineable offense. Burning in town can be hazardous to all those who live near. Embers that fly through the air make it possible for fires to spread without knowledge. An ember landing in a yard or in a gutter on a home can lead to disaster very quickly. Please be sure to contact your local Fire Department in the city and the county when planning a burn to gain permission from the department. This also allows them to notify law enforcement and avoid unnecessary emergency response. For more information on burning contact the Cameron Volunteer Fire Department at (254) 697-4702.
