|Burned park grass from last summer|
"Thursday, at roughly 10:30 a.m., as I was exiting Northbound LSD at Lawrence and saw a woman standing over an open fire just east of the exit ramp. It was a pile of wood in the grass and she was just standing there, arms crossed, staring into the flames.
I called 911 about the fire and heard sirens headed that way within a minute or two. Given all the rain we've had, there probably wasn't much risk of the fire spreading, but it's still dangerous and illegal to have open fires in the park.
Please ask UU readers to be especially vigilant about this. It was a problem last summer.
Setting fires is especially frightening, but maybe she didn't like her new backpack/bedroll...."
