Outdoor Wood Burning Units




After a long winter, residents can finally start enjoying some much-deserved warmer weather and for many, that means fire pits and outdoor fire places. To help reduce the risk of an outdoor fire during the summer season, especially now that it's getting drier, the Town is reminding residents to use caution when using any outdoor wood burning unit.

When using an ourdoor wood burning unit, it is recommended that residents:

  • only burn clean, dry firewood
  • never leave the fire pit unsupervised.
  • have a hose or bucket with water close by to put out the fire
  • build the fire pit into the ground, on brick or stone, or in a fire-proof container
  • place the fire pit 3.5 metres away from the woods, brush or other flammable material
  • avoid placing the fire pit under any trees, branches, plants or other overhanging structures that can catch fire
For more information, please refer to the following Notice on Outdoor Wood Burning Units.
