This week in Pine Ridge a simple fire to burn papers so I am told, got out of hand and encroached on the Pine Ridge Trail nearing a trail crossing and another property. Thankfully, the fire department came in time to stop it. Please understand the importance of the conditions i.e. dry, hot and wind elements. Seek assistance with the local fire department when and if you decide to burn and they will guide you. Review the tips that Pine Ridge was given by the Citrus County Fire Department at last months Board of Director meeting.
