Tuesday Pleasantville Fire Department, Knoxville Rural
Fire Department, and Marion County Sheriffs Deputies
responded to a controlled burn that was not called into
the Marion County Sheriffs Office. Sheriff Ron Goemaat
says residents need to call the Sheriffs Office before
burning leaves or other wood products. He says residents
should call 828-2220 to let dispatch know that a burn is
taking place, and not an emergency fire.
