CHARLOTTE AMALIE – The temporary ban on burning for the St. Thomas-St. John district will end on Monday, according to the Virgin Islands Fire Service.

The Fire Service said people who need permission to burn are urged to contact their area fire station so that fire personnel can conduct a visual inspection of the property to grant authorization.

Once authorization is given, applicants are urged to acquire a valid burn permit before any burning is conducted, the service said.

All burn permits can be purchased at the main business office located at No. 3800 Crown Bay, Suite 201. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m-ish.

John McCarthy is primarily known for his investigative reporting on the U.S. Virgin Islands. A series of reports beginning in the 1990's revealed that there was everything from coliform bacteria to Cryptosporidium in locally-bottled St. Croix drinking water, according to a then-unpublished University of the Virgin Islands sampling. Another report, following Hurricane Hugo in 1989, cited a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) confidential overview that said that over 50 percent of the U.S. Virgin Islands public lives below the poverty line. The Virgin Islands Free Press is the only Caribbean news source to regularly incorporate the findings of U.S. Freedom of Information Act requests. John's articles have appeared in the BVI Beacon, St. Croix Avis, San Juan Star and Virgin Islands Daily News. He is the former news director of WSVI-TV Channel 8 on St. Croix.
