A person is guilty of illegal burning when he intentionally or recklessly starts or causes a fire or helps a fire to continue to burn or fails to extinguish or attempt to extinguish an open fire, as directed by the Police or Fire Department, within the Village of Oxford, without having first obtained a permit to conduct said fire, issued by the Fire Chief or Assistant Fire Chief and co-signed by the Chief of Police or his designee.
