SBFD-INQUIRY: Fire Pit Regulations


What are the fire pit regulations?

Fire pits are allowed in the city limits. If you feel somebody is burning illegally, please call 911.

You may have a pit fire as long as:

  • Clean fire wood is burned
  • Fire is not offensive to the neighbors and the neighborhood*
  • Someone over 18 years old is watching it
  • Fire extinguishing means are available at the site
  • A screen lid is preferred if it comes with the pit

*If there are complaints about the fire, and the Fire Department determines the fire is offensive, you will be asked to extinguish the fire.

    Note: these are outdoor pits only- not 55 gallon drum fires.

    When am I able to use a fire pit?

    Fire Pit Hours:

    • You cannot burn past sunset
    • Fire needs to be out completely by sunset
