Illegal Bonfire Burn Proves Costly

By  | 

While exact numbers are still being worked up, the county estimates a $1,300 price tag for taking care of the lit student bonfire Sunday.

For now, the county's general fund will reimburse the workers who came out after someone or some group trespassed on Hot Rod Hill and violated the burn ban. Brazos County Judge Randy Sims says the guilty parties will foot the bill from Sunday when they are caught.

Also Tuesday, student bonfire leaders say they will decide on a cleanup plan when school restarts and all members are back in town. They say they have not been put on a time table by track owner Wayne Brown.
