OPEN BURNING REGULATIONS

OPEN BURNING REGULATIONS

Open burning in Ohio is regulated by the Fire Code and Ohio EPA. The open burning laws have changed over the years and we would like to give a brief overview of the requirements. The fire code regulating open burning in Ohio is listed below. Only clean seasoned firewood can be burned. It is illegal to burn anything else without a permit from the Ohio EPA and the Fire Department.

If you wish to have a campfire, the fire code allows this as long as the fire is a minimum of 25 feet from a building or combustible material, the wood stack size must not be larger than 2 feet high by 3 feet wide, the fire must be constantly attended and you must have a way to control or extinguish the fire immediately available. A permit from the EPA and the fire department is required for any fires larger than a campfire, such as a bonfire.

If you have any questions, please call your Sylvania Fire Department at 419-882-7676.
