The Taylorville Fire Department is warning residents to always be on top of your burns after a controlled fire Thursday went wrong and caught the side of a home on fire near Lake Taylorville.


Taylorville Fire Chief Mike Crews has some tips for those looking to burn yard waste or other items now that the area is seeing some warmer weather.



Crews also recommends having burns on days with lighter winds. He says wind played a role in the fire Thursday and lighter winds allow for more control of a burn.
