Peru Fire Chief issues burning ban

Posted by wlpo on June 27, 2012

You won’t be burning in Peru for awhile.  Given the dry conditions, the City of Peru is under a burning ban.

Fire Chief Jeff King suggested it during the city council meeting Wednesday night.  He says other towns have issued them.  The ban started immediately and includes yard waste and all other kinds of fires you could start in your yard, especially rubbish fires.

A person living near Westclox was ticketed Tuesday after firefighters say they were burning couches and stuff in their yard.
