The Fire Chief may serve a written order personally upon the owner or possessor of a lot, when, in his opinion, a fire hazard exists thereon. The order shall direct such owner or possessor to remove or abate the fire hazard within 10 days after such personal service. Every owner or possessor who fails or refuses to remove the said nuisance from such lot or land within 10 days after being personally served with such order is guilty of a misdemeanor. Evidence that the current assessment roll of the county shows real property assessed to a person shall constitute prima facie evidence that such person is the owner of such property.
