ALBANY—A number of brush fires have occurred recently in the Capital Region. The state Department of Environmental Conservation reminds the public that garbage burning is never allowed and that residential brush burning in towns with fewer than 20,000 residents is prohibited through May 15 due to dry conditions that typically exist at that time. Brush burning in towns with more than 20,000 residents is never allowed.
Well at least Campfires less than 3 feet in height and 4 feet in length and ceremonial or celebratory bonfires are allowed.
