Outdoor burning is common in Tennessee, particularly in the spring time. Home owners often burn debris and brush on their property during the spring, which can lead to an increase in uncontrolled burns and wildfires. Wildfires result in enormous losses of natural resources, personal property, and even lives. Fire can be an effective tool when used properly. Even so, the best intentions can produce disastrous results when safety precautions are not taken.
