FIRE SAFETY


Fire Safety is very important, whether you are having a fire in your backyard, campground, fireplace, or in the backcountry. Always check your local community for burn bans and restrictions. This is very true if you plan to go to the woods. It is important to check with the United States Forest Service Ranger Stations before lighting a fire.

*California Proposition 65 Warning

Burning fireplace or wood stove fuels: natural firewood, natural gas, and manufactured fireplace logs, results in the emissions of carbon monoxide, soot and other combustion by-products which are known by the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or reproductive harm. Many factors affect the operation of a fireplace. A properly installed and maintained fireplace and chimney will dramatically reduce the likelihood of combustion products entering your home. An inadequate air supply could cause a fireplace malfunction. If you suspect that your unit is not functioning properly, you should call a qualified contractor.

The Mickwick Brothers’ Simple Rules for Fires:


  • 1.

    Having a fire is privilege not a right. It is a responsibility, never leave it unattended, ever!

  • 2.

    Have a charged hose next to your fire at all times. If you do not have access to a charged hose, make sure there is a bucket of
    water within 15 feet of the fire in case of a gust of wind or rogue ember.

  • 3.

    When you are done enjoying the dance of the flames. Put your fire out. Yes, we mean dead out!

  • 4.

    Keep the fire under control at all times, do not burn oversized logs, or have logs hanging outside the pit or central area of flames.

  • 5.

    Do not burn anything other than wood in your fire. It is a fire not a garbage pit. That is why they invented recycling.

  • 6.

    Only burn, dead, downed, and dry wood. Do not chop down trees to burn.

  • 7.

    Do not burn during windy conditions or on ridge lines. Mother Nature is more powerful than your bucket of water.

  • 8.

    Report any unattended fires or dangerous fires to local authorities immediately. Wildfires are real!
