Regarding the fire in Myrtle Beach that displaced many residents, when is there going to be a total ban on open burning? This issue is long overdue to be addressed by the politicians. I live in a community with about 250 homes. About 10 feet from the first row of houses, a person who lives outside our community burns debris. The smoke is, at times, unbearable.
There is no consideration by this person that many people near his property have breathing problems. The smoke actually seeps into the homes. According to the local fire department, this person has a burning permit.
It's high time to make a change to this policy!
