Bonfires

Bonfires, recreational fires, and warming fires are permitted within our District. If you live in an area with a Homeowners Assocation, or if you reside in a Mobile Home Park, please check with your HOA or property management if bonfires are allowed.

The guidelines below are provided to help ensure the safety of yourself and neighbors should you have a bonfire.

  • Do not have a bonfire when weather conditions or local circumstances make such fires hazardous. The fire department is authorized to order the extinguishment of the bonfire if deemed unsafe.
     
  • The bonfire must be 50 feet or further from buildings, structures, and combustible materials.
     
  • Use clean burning wood and monitor the fire at all times. Do not burn any sort of vegetation like leaves, grass, or tree trimmings.
     
  • The bonfire must be constantly attended by a responsible adult until the fire is extinguished.
     
  • A minimum of one portable fire extinguisher (4A rating) or other approved on-site fire-extinguishing equipment, such as dirt, sand, water barrel, garden hose or water truck, shall be available.
     
  • Above all, use common sense.
