Your Outdoor Fire Pit and Your Yard
Outdoor fire pits are a human tradition, and for many people they also bring up memories from our childhoods. A fire can feel relaxed, down-to-earth, and rustic, but there are rules for fire pit installation and management in Kawartha Lakes.
The rules affecting your fire pit can vary based on your property and the size and type of fire pit you want. One important thing to keep in mind is that most places require that fire pits be at least 10 feet away from most structures, as well as property lines with your neighbors.
There’s a chance that if your fire pit is very small and simple, you may not require a permit, however, most do. Even those that do not require a permit require a visit from a local fire department to assess the safety of your building project, whether your project is for a wood burning or a natural gas fire pit.
Wood burning pits need to be analyzed because of the tendency to throw sparks and embers, and propane fire pits require a laying of gas lines.
Once you get the OK, a fire pit needs to be built on a fireproof base. This is why so many consumers choose a stone or brick fire pit. Wood bases are a risk even if there is a fireproof place for the fire to burn, because embers and other sparks can spit remarkably far.
