On the evening of April 5 I was enjoying the cooler evening temps on my patio. I started to smell smoke in the air so I got up to investigate. Would you believe a neighbor several doors down was having a campfire in his backyard?!?
To top it off it was windy out and there is a preserve behind all of us which is as dry as everything else around here right now. Here's the clincher...this guy is a fireman with the Sarasota Fire Dept!
Unfortunately, one can't call the local fire dept to complain about something that might happen (like a wildfire) one has to wait until a wildfire actually starts before they respond or they said they can charge you for a false fire. Yes, they have been called to this neighborhood before for such a fire, at a different address, and gave us that warning. A fireman should know better than to have a fire going on a windy day right by a wooded area...thanks for listening, I had to vent!
