    I'm not sure you can.
    Case in point. Some years ago it was a declared TotaL Fire Ban Day here.

    I was outside when I smelt the distinctive smell of hot Eucalyptus burning, couldn't see anything.

    As a precaution I rang the 000 just to doubly clarify it was a Fire Ban on that day.

    Before the bloke had hung up (or seemed like it) there was a Water Bomber from Woodside circling around the address Local brigade had turned out that I could hear in the distance & a Cop Car had driven up the street.

    Stupid thing was the bloke had lived here all his life & had experienced the 1983 bushfires which had gutted his property & yet still thought he'd get away with burning rubbish behind his shed & no-one would notice it. Bloody wrong! I did & I couldn't even see his house, just smelt the smoke.

    I don't know what fine he got but I hope it was a ginormous one. Either that or the cops may have shot him to save the cost of him going to Court.

    The situation with the connection between climate change and fires is being assessed.

    using a disaster like this to push an agent is pretty wrong.
