Contractors get warning ticket for Tryon Equestrian Center fire

Tryon Fire Department says a controlled burn got out of hand near the Tryon Equestrian Center.

The Polk Co. Ranger for NC Forestry say this was a permitted controlled burn that contractors for Tryon Equestrian center were doing 2 to 2 1/2 weeks ago.

They stopped because of the dry/blowing conditions.

Embers sparked back up and started flying yesterday creating fires all over the place on the equestrian center property.

The contractor was issued a warning ticket for letting it get out of control.
