Week 1 - Outdoor Burning:

When camping, grilling, or having a bonfire, make sure that you check with the fire department for any restrictions on starting an open-air, recreational, or outdoor cooking fire. Obtain the proper permits, if required. Some places do not permit outdoor burning during certain seasons. Closely observe all outdoor fires, and make sure they are completely out before leaving. Open fires must be at least 50 feet away from anything that can burn. Recreational fires need to be at least 25 feet from anything that can burn. Avoid burning on windy or dry days. On these days, it is easy for the open burning to spread out of control. Where outdoor burning is allowed, never use gasoline or other flammable or combustible liquids. When burning, have a hose, a bucket of water, or shovel and dirt or sand nearby to extinguish the fire.
