TO REPORT AN EMERGENCY: DIAL 9-1-1

How far from buildings does an outdoor fire pit (in ground) need to be?

A recreational fire (also known as a camp fire, cooking fire, or warming fire) is a small, occasional (less than four per month) fire which is no larger than three feet in diameter and two feet high, burning only dry, cut firewood. For fire safety reasons, recreational fires shall be 25 feet from any structure or combustible material, or only 15 feet if contained in a non-combustible fire pit less than four feet in diameter and a minimum of 12 inches high.
