Fire pits and chimeneas have become very popular and are widely available for sale at garden and home stores. As you enjoy these products on a cool, fall evening, it is important to use them safely. Please keep these guidelines in mind:

  • Please check with your local municipality to determine if these devices are legal or whether a permit is required. Determine whether a cover is required for a fire pit.
