Fire Pit Safety this Fall
Fall is the time for outdoor fire pits and family time making smores. Fire Pit safety starts with selecting the right site. Make sure the ground is level. Keep fires located at least 10-20 feet away from plants and your home.
Never operate your fire pit beneath a building overhang or a partially enclosed space. Use a lot of caution with overhanging trees which can easily ignite.
For wood burning fire pits cut logs so their length is less than three quarters the diameter of the pit. Never use lighter fluid or gasoline to start a fire pit. Position chairs so that people can move about their seats without tumbling into the fire. Keep an eye out on children whenever a fire pit is being used.
