Usually I take the dogs out for one last walk in the neighborhood before we retire for the night. Last night we were walking and I noticed a terrible odor coming from an area behind my house.
I can see a dozen or so houses on the street behind my property, but I did not see anything unusual along the street where I had a view. But it was clear that someone back there was burning something and it smelled like burning trash.
I did not see any smoke coming anywhere, but it was dark and it might have been right in front of me. The smell was strong and constant. I wish I knew who’s house it was coming from. They need to be told to not burn trash in their fireplace. It is not good for the chimney and can cause a fire. Plus, it is illegal in this county to burn your trash – it causes pollution.
