I’m kind of a Google news junky. It’s set up as my home page, and it’s like a black hole of my time. One article leads to the next, and suddenly, it’s Monday again. But I thought this news article was pretty funny; apparently, wood burning fire pits were made illegal in Denver. The fire departments were tired of getting calls about out of control backyard fires, and they laid the smack down.
Gas and propane fire pits are acceptable as you can control the size of the fire, but wood soaked in gasoline, I guess, is not considered a “gas fire pit.” Fire tends to get a little out of control, and it hurts neighbor relations. Also, I guess the smoke produced by wood burning fires is environmentally hazardous and harmful if they get sucked into an air conditioning unit. Yeah, who knew?
But the friendly neighborhood fire department of Denver encourages you to contact your local fire agency to know if wood burning fire pits are also illegal in the area you live. If so, you could get a pretty nice price for it on the black market.
