DENVER (AP) - Prosecutors have dismissed charges alleging the husband of Denver District Attorney Beth McCann violated a Grand County ordinance when he burned slash piles on his property.

The Denver Post reported (https://dpo.st/2nANBar) Monday that two counts accusing Christopher Linsmayer of having an open fire on his property without a permit were dropped late last month.

Authorities say 65-year-old Linsmayer was seen with the open fire in Kremmling on Nov. 1 and was burning without an adequate water source.

In a separate September incident, Lt. Dan Mayer says the slash piles Linsmayer were burning got out of control and burned as many as 10 acres. About a dozen homes were evacuated.

Mayer says it wasn’t intentional and Linsmayer was not charged.

Linsmayer’s attorney could not be reached for comment.
