Lower Saucon Township police say a bonfire at 4303 Lower Saucon Road was a nuisance to neighbors, and that the homeowner responsible for starting the fire has been cited for an alleged township ordinance violation.

In a news release, police said William G. Broad Jr. was cited shortly after 9 p.m. Nov. 29, after neighbors complained about smoke, odor and "explosions from burning."

Police said officers who arrived to investigate the complaints found a small but "decent size fire" burning in a side yard of the property.

Broad was ordered to extinguish the blaze "because of complaints and past incidents with burning," police added.

Last month, police said Broad was charged with disorderly conduct after ordering both firefighters and police off his property while allegedly "yelling and screaming at firefighters and neighbors."

In that case, police said Broad violated a burning ban by starting what became an out-of-control fire on his property.
