Q: AM I ALLOWED TO HAVE A FIRE DURING THE BURN BAN?
A: When the fire danger is at the Medium level, we are restricted from having open fires any larger than 3 ft x 3 ft. On top of that we always have a fire ban in place from July 15 through October 15th. The fire danger is however now at the HIGH level with the following restrictions:
There will be no open fires permitted in Clearwood, which includes all ground fires for brush or yard waste between July 15 and October 15. Recreational or camp fires are allowable within the restrictions noted below in a firepit.
Fire Pit Design Requirements:
Fire Pits must be elevated off the ground a minimum of 12 (recommend 18-24) inches AND have a fireproof protection between burning material and the ground may be no more than 3 ft x 3 ft. There should be a mesh screen or grate for airflow and a metal top to stop embers from floating into the trees. A suggestion to protect the ground from absorbing the heat is to put down a blanket of pavers or bricks to sit any commercial fire pits on that you purchase at your local retailers.
If you are building your own pit, ensure that you put down a fireproof liner at the bottom before you put in the grate. Lining the pit with rocks on top of the fireproof liner adds another protection.
Fires that are on the ground can trace back through red root systems and start a fire. As dry as the pines are, embers can be very dangerous. Keep a hose turned on and nearby as a precaution. Soak you fire when your done rather than leave it to burn out. All fires must be attended. You may not burn yard waste or other materials during the fire ban.
Lastly, be diligent with charcoal fires for food prep as well. Always keep a hose nearby and never leave any fire unattended. Don’t empty what you think are cooled off bricks into the vegetation as they can smoulder from the inside and still start a fire.
