(AUBURN) - The DeKalb County Sheriffs Department is asking residents to call dispatchers and give them your address before they plan to do a controlled burn. Depending on the location, people sometimes panic when they see smoke and will call 9-1-1 to report a fire. If dispatchers have your address already, then they can call you and make sure everything is alright before sending out a fire department. Don't forget to call dispatchers back and let them know when you are all finished and the fire it out. The number for DeKalb County Central Dispatch is (260) 333-7911. Do not call 9-1-1 to report that you are having a controlled burn.
