124. (1)  When the permission authorized by section 123 has been given, the Minister, the officer of the department authorized thereto or the fire-ranger, as the case may be, must decide what precautions are to be taken in the special circumstances of each case.
In every case, however, the material to be burned must be piled in heaps or rows at a distance sufficient to ensure the protection of the forest, and it shall be the duty of the person so authorized to make a fire to remain on the spot until the fire is completely extinguished.
(2)  The fact of obtaining a permit to burn shall not discharge the person obtaining the same from general responsibility for any expenses or damages caused by the fire so lighted.
(3)  The permit thus obtained shall not allow the setting of a fire at the time mentioned when the prevailing weather conditions might cause the spreading of fire outside of the place indicated.
