Apparently burning leaves within city limits is "frowned upon" here. It seems that this is actually a fineable offense. It also can result in civil charges if your burning of leaves would cause damage to city property or your neighbors home. It is also apparently at no point acceptable to joke about fire safety. Fire safety is a "serious matter". Fire can cause loss of property and lives. So it is "not acceptable" to burn anything within city limits! If this is "difficult for you" you can always "relocate to an area outside city limits".
This is just some information I read on the Internet. There is no way any of this is a reflection of my life. I would never consider lighting a pile of leaves on fire in an effort to save time. That is just ridiculous!!!
