(Burning brush)…It was not a controlled burn. A witness reported the incident over the weekend.
The witness said a group of juveniles were burning brush and palm trees in the 300 block of south First Street. When police arrived, the juveniles scattered. The witness, however, was able to identify a couple of the perpetrators. Their guardians were contacted and a report filed. Police say when they arrived the fire was smoldering, and there were no flames evident.
