-Santos Griffith, 56, of West Third Street, was charged by Salem Police with illegal burning, a misdemeanor, after Salem firefighters were called at 8:18 p.m. Saturday to the 100 block of West Third Street for a report of a couch on fire. Police had responded initially after noticing a large amount of smoke in the area of North Ellsworth Avenue and found a large fire behind a residence on West Third Street. Firefighters found a full-size couch half in a burning pit, fully involved. Also burning was copper wiring that Griffith was trying to remove the plastic insulation from. While trying to explain the open burning laws to him, he allegedly argued the couch was contained in the fire pit and he was doing nothing wrong. The fire was put out.
