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 as well as a fence or property line, 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. If the fire emits smoke that becomes objectionable or offensive, or atmospheric conditions make the fire hazardous, the fire code mandates the fire be extinguished. 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.
