'Controlled' label on house burn was not accurate

Jun 2, 2017 Laurie Thorne, Riverton


Do I have this right? A person has a right to call up the fire department and say "I am doing a controlled burn," and then light a two-story house on fire?

I don't know who owns the property, and it is nothing personal.

But IR00;drove by that fire last Friday night on Riverview Road, and it did not seem "controlled" at all to me.

I clap my hands for the fire department for making the call to put it out.

This was a dangerous situation, and the fire department did the right thing.
