     304.2.    Requirements

               A.   Material to be burned shall be in a condition
                    to facilitate combustion and minimize the
                    amount of smoke emitted during combustion.

               B.   Except for large trees (diameter of six or
                    more inches), only the amount that can
                    reasonably be expected to completely burn
                    within the following twenty-four hours shall
                    be ignited in any one day.

               C.   All outdoor fires shall be ignited only with
                    approved ignition devices as defined in Rule
                    300.2.C.

               D.   Material to be burned shall be ignited as
                    rapidly as practicable within applicable fire
                    control restrictions.

               E.   The APCO shall regulate burning or require
                    mitigation when the meteorological conditions
                    could otherwise cause smoke to create or
                    contribute to a violation of a state or
                    federal ambient air quality standard or cause
                    a public nuisance.

               F.   No material shall be burned unless it is free
                    of tires, rubbish, tar paper, plastic, and
                    demolition debris, is reasonably free of
                    dirt, soil, and moisture, and piled material
                    shall be loosely stacked in a manner to
                    insure combustion.

               G.   The APCO shall regulate the total acreage or
                    tonnage that may be burned each day within
                    the APCD.
