[HISTORY: Adopted by Special Town Meeting of the Town of Alfred 6-13-1978 by Art. 7. Amendments noted where applicable.]
Fire prevention — See Ch. 105.
It shall be unlawful for any person to kindle or use a fire for the purpose of clearing land or burning logs, stumps, roots, brush, slash, fields of dry grass, pasture, blueberry lands or any manufactured materials in the Town of Alfred without first obtaining a written permit. Requests for permits to burn may be obtained from the Fire Chief or the Town Forest Fire Wardens.
This shall not exempt any person from securing a permit to burn on his own lands. Moisture, wind, time of day, length of burning period needed, sufficient force and equipment and any other condition deemed necessary for the granting of such permits for burning shall be at the discretion of the Fire Chief or Town Forest Fire Wardens.
Any person to whom a burning permit is granted is in no way relieved of legal responsibility if the fire escapes or causes damage to the property of another.
Any person who violates any provision of this chapter shall, upon conviction thereof, be liable to the penalties set forth in 30-A M.R.S.A. § 4452.
