I don't think there is a burn ban in effect in Potter county ~~probably should be though.

There is NO burning ban in effect in Potter County, even though you could be arrested for reckless burning and be responsible for damages, cost related to extinguishing the fire. Several area fire chiefs attempted two weeks ago to have one implemented with no avail. There is a process and 50% of the county fire chiefs have to agree, the district forester, and the county ema director takes this to the county commissioners to have a declaration signed and put into effect, after a period public announcements and advertisements to the public. The district forester stated it wasn't needed at that time.
