Recreational Fires

On April 10, 2006, the Jackson Center Village Council adopted the 2005 Ohio Fire Code.  Included in the Ohio Fire Code is the definition of a “Recreational Fire.” 

A recreational fire is an outdoor fire burning materials other than rubbish where the fuel being burned is not contained in an incinerator, outdoor fireplace, barbeque grill, or barbeque pit and has a total fuel area of 3 feet or less in diameter and 2 feet or less in height for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth, or similar purposes. 

A recreational fire shall not be conducted within 25 feet of a structure or combustible material.  Conditions which could cause a fire spread within 25 feet of a structure should be eliminated prior to ignition.  The recreational fire shall be constantly attended until the fire is extinguished.  A minimum of one portable fire extinguisher with a minimum 4-A rating or other approved on-site fire extinguishing equipment, such as dirt, sand, water barrel, garden hose, or water truck shall be available for immediate utilization.
