Rule 304  Smoke Management

          304.1 Requirements.

               A.   Material to be burned shall be arranged so
                    that it will burn with a minimum of smoke.

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

               C.   All outdoor fires shall be ignited only with
                    approved ignition devices.

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

               E.   Burning shall be curtailed  when smoke is
                    drifting into a nearby populated area. 

               F.   No material shall be burned unless it is free
                    of tires, household rubbish, tar paper, and
                    construction debris; is reasonably free of
                    dirt, soil, and moisture; and is loosely
                    stacked in such a manner to promote drying and
                    insure combustion with a minimum of smoke.
