Looking at the picture, I understand why they want to burn it... I would, too!

Definitely. The burning is an important part of the tradition. Hopefully they will find a way around those fire protection measures. Otherwise the goat is nothing but an uninteresting pile of straw on a wooden frame. Burn, goat, burn! We must have ritual enactments of production/destruction of symbolic entities!
