(A) Notice to the county dispatch, as required by this subchapter, shall not be construed to mean that the open burning complies with the provisions of this subchapter, other local ordinances, or state laws or regulations. Notification to the county dispatch does not imply consent or permission to burn. Notification is merely an alert to prevent possible unnecessary runs by any Fire Department or law enforcement agency.
(B) Nothing in this subchapter is to be construed as to prevent the Cabinet for Natural Resources and Environmental Protection and the Division of Forestry from enforcing any stature or regulation adopted pursuant to their authority.
(C) Any person responsible for an illegal fire and a resulting fire response by the County Fire Department shall be responsible for the cost of the run and any firefighting procedures initiated by that Fire Department.
(D) Upon notification, the County Fire Departments are hereby allowed to enter upon private property and extinguish any illegal fire upon the authority of the County Judge-Executive or an appointed designee.
