Is it legal to have a fire pit in a backyard?

No, it is illegal to have an open fire or flame of any type on a property. The only exception is an outdoor grill, a similar cooking appliance or an appliance that cooks over a wood flame. You can only use the amount of wood necessary for cooking and the fire must be immediately extinguished upon completion. All wood must be seasoned firewood only. No fresh cut branches or debris. Residents are urged to never leave an open flame or outdoor cooking appliance unattended.
