As nights begin to cool off for the season, recreational fires will be more common throughout the city. To keep your property and neighborhood safe please remember to follow recreational fire and burning guidelines while burning at your property.
Recreational fires should be confined to an area no greater than 3 x 3 x 3 feet and should be completely surrounded by a non-combustible material such as but not limited to rock, masonry, or ferrous metal. Areas intended for recreational fire use may be located no closer than 25 feet to a combustible structure such as a house, garage, deck or fence.
