Open burning is defined as the ignition and subsequent burning of any combustible material such as
garbage, leaves, grass, twigs, litter, paper, vegetative matter involved with land clearing, or any sort of
debris out-of-doors either in a burn barrel or on the ground. The use of propane or gas stoves, charcoal
briquette grills, or the use of tobacco in any form is not covered under county burn bans. Camp fires in
campgrounds are allowed in the fire rings that confine and contain the camp fire, and where all
flammable materials have been removed for a radius of five (5) feet.

Under the resolution, a violation of the ban on open burning is a summary offense; punishable by fines
up to $100 for the first offense, $200 for the second offense, and $300 for the third offense. The
resolution is enforceable by local and State Police officers.
