Q: Can I burn a recreational fire/bonfire at my house?

A: If there is no burn ban or restrictions in effect (check our IHFR Blog Alerts and/or Jefferson County), then a cooking fire is permitted. The fire must be contained in a fire pit no larger than 3' x 3' and the fire must be no taller than 2'. The fire pit must never be left unattended and must be located in an open area. As a safety precaution, there must also be a water hose connected nearby.
