Dover said members of the fire service assisted Thursday in the brush fire on Townsend Byrd Road because of a lack of available firefighters.
According to the MFC, any person who knowingly and willfully violates a burning ban is guilty of a misdemeanor and may be fined not less than $100 and not more than $500.
Dover said the chance of someone being ticketed are slim but if a sheriff's deputy or fire officials deem this is a habitual offense, then tickets could be issued.
"We are not out to have residents written up," Dover said. "We are asking that residents to respect the ban and the firefighters by waiting until the conditions change. Better days are coming but right now is not the time to burn."
