Open burning is prohibited within the city limits of Edgewood. Permissible fires are those fires that include candles, torches, grills, and ceremonial fires that are burned in an area no greater than three (3) square feet. These fires must also be in an enclosed metal container or surrounded by noncombustible materials, such as stone. No fire should be left unattended and it is recommended that a hose connected to a water source or other appropriately sized extinguisher be present. During extreme weather conditions, this regulation may be superseded by a higher governmental authority.

What to do around Emergency Vehicles
Kentucky has a Move Over Law (KRS 189.930) meaning:
When an emergency vehicle is stopped on the side of the road:
- Move to the next lane.
- Slow down if changing lanes is not possible.
- Use caution and watch for workers and/or emergency personnel.
- Stay alert and minimize distractions.
Emergency vehicles display yellow, red, red and white, red and blue, or blue lights. This includes police, fire, and EMS, as well as construction vehicles, tow trucks and other public safety vehicles.
Secondary crashes, which occur as a result of a previous crash, account for 20 percent of all crashes. With vehicles traveling at highway speeds coming to an abrupt stop, not only is safety a concern at the scene, but also traffic back-up. Secondary crashes are often greater than that of the original incident.
