    and we have cops out citing people for burning trash in their yard. there is no dry conditions anymore. a cop comes on my property with a citation for burning trash im going to cuss him out . firefighters in this county are poorly trained, educated and apparently have nothing better to do than ride around and look for people burning trash and calling cops
