Grand Falls-Windsor fire chief says move your butt can to prevent fires
Fire chief tweeted warning about discarding cigarettes in cans
The Grand Falls-Windsor fire department responded to a fire at an apartment building on Thursday that chief Vince MacKenzie says was started by a cigarette.
MacKenzie warned the public on Twitter on Thursday evening against discarding cigarettes in cans placed too close to buildings.
While the damage to the building appears to be minor, MacKenzie said discarding cigarettes in cans is never a safe option.
"Cigarette butt cans are never safe and shouldn't be in proximity of buildings and combustible decks," MacKenzie said.
