Open burning of field, yard, forest and other agricultural waste is hereby prohibited. This ban includes brush piles, bonfires, fire pits, chimineas and campfires. In addition, extreme caution should be used when using a grill to cookout and when discarding smoking materials. This includes any current open burning permits. All unauthorized fires will be extinguished and the responsible person may be issued a citation and fine. This ban is in effect in all areas served by Miami Township Fire-Rescue, including the Villages of Yellow Springs and Clifton, Miami Township, and Antioch College-owned property.
