Firefighters from Wakarusa, Eudora, Palmyra and Willow Springs Townships spent four hours Friday night extinguishing a controlled burn of dilapidated mobile homes near the intersection of N 1100 and E 1600 Roads, close to the town of Sibleyville.

Wakarusa Township Fire Chief Chris Moore said firefighters responded to a fire call around 7 p.m. to find a property owner attempting to burn three or four scrapped mobile homes.

“You could see it for five miles in any direction,” Moore said. “You can’t just light a house on fire.”

Moore said the fire was finally extinguished a little before 11 p.m. The person responsible for the fire was not fined or charged with any crimes. No firefighters were injured battling the blaze.

Sometimes it works if you 'beg for forgiveness, instead of asking permission'. But normally only once.

But I guess that is all he/she needed.

A crime that used massive public resources but which carried absolutely no penalty. Learn to Tax the criminals, not the rest of us who pay for their behavior.
