An illegal burn in the 600 block of North Jefferson Street was put out swiftly Thursday afternoon.

When Hutchinson firefighters arrived on the scene at approximately 2:50 p.m. the fire in a burn barrel several feet from residence had spread to the home’s siding and lawn.

Firefighters put the fire out in minutes.

The man was handcuffed by police. No names have been released.

The Hutchinson Fire Department reminds the public it is illegal to burn items in city limits without a permit.
