You may also have warming/campfires in fire pits, Chimineas and other designated burning structures such as outside fireplaces. However, backyard burning of yard debris is still prohibited and will continue to be in effect thru October 14th.

Please remember to have water available and use normal safety precautions when using fire for warming, cooking, or entertaining.
