During the month of December the
Fire Department were called to three
fires in this city, all of which orig
inated in piles of hay, straw or simi
lar substances. Under the provisions
of Ordinance 17 it is unlawful for
any person to store subtsances oi
this character in a stack or pile in
any place within the City Limits un
less the same is securely inclosed so
as to protect it from all danger as
to fire. The Ordinance also provides
that the City Council may grant per
mission to persons living in the out
skirts of the city to keep hay, and
straw in a stack or pile without hav
ing the same covered or inclosed, but
in order to obtain such permission
application must be made in writing
to the City Council. On account of
the fire hazard connected with the
storage of substances of this char
acter in open stack or pile, and upon
the urgent request of the Chief of the
Fire Deparmtent the City Council has
determined that the provisions of the
to shall be enforc-
.A .persons are, therefore, no
tified to immediately remove or pro
tect by suitable covering or inclosure
all hay, straw and similar substances
now kept in open stack or pile, and
to refrain from storing these sub
stances in this manner in the future.
By order of the City Council.
