Old Kirk Road fire in violation of county ordinance
GENEVA TOWNSHIP – Three large piles of trees and timber that were set on fire Friday required local fire departments to make two trips to see that it was put out, officials said.
Geneva Fire Department Deputy Chief Mark Einwich said the piles of wood that were set on fire were in violation of Kane County’s open burning ordinance. Officials referred the incident to the health department for enforcement. Einwich said the county enforces the open burning ordinance in unincorporated areas.
Geneva firefighters were called at 10:20 a.m. Friday to the property on Old Kirk Road and Cherry Lane and took about 45 minutes to get the fire under control. They returned at 4 p.m. with St. Charles and West Chicago fire departments to make sure everything was extinguished.
