Can I build a fire in a fire pit or backyard fireplace to roast marshmallows or hotdogs?

City Ordinance 3032, Series 2005, allows the occasional use of recreational type backyard fires for family activities or social events. Warming fires at construction sites are also allowed. It is expected that these fires will be kept small, be located in a fire pit or outdoor fireplace and supervised. Only clean dry untreated wood should be used. No permit is required, but a courtesy phone call to the Fire Department advising the firefighters of the recreational fire would be appreciated. Call 541-963-3123
