BIG SPRING - The nights may be a little chilly outside but before you light up campfire, listen up.

Officials in Big Spring are warning residents that whether a burn ban is in place or not, there are just some types of burning that are never allowed.

Campfires or open fires are against the law even on private property.

The only way to get around that is to get a permit from the fire marshal's office.

Outdoor fireplaces are allowed but under strict guidelines. 

Also banned are burning weeds or tree trimmings or dead grass.

Violating any of these can result in a $2,000 fine.
