DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - Firefighters in Decatur County want to remind residents that they can get a hefty fine for burning household trash.
Decatur County Fire Rescue and Climax Volunteer Fire Department were called out to a fire on Monday where someone was doing just that.
Right now the Georgia Forestry Commission does not have a burn ban, but it is illegal to burn household trash.
The rule is that if it didn't grow there, you can't burn it.
Officials said residents must get a permit if they plan on burning.
