“During periods when the open burning ban is in effect, no person shall start or maintain an open fire for any purpose without the approval of the Township. Approval of the Township may be obtained by written application to the Township setting forth what is to be burned, the location of the proposed open burning, safeguards to insure that the burning will be properly contained and the availability of usable water supply in the vicinity of the burn to terminate the burn and to prevent its unintended spread.
