[ARCHIVED] Recreational fire rules

fire with red hot embers

Recreational fires are allowed in the City of Lakeville when the following rules are followed:

  • The fire is contained to a 3' x 3' x 3' area surrounded by non-combustible and non-smoke or odor-producing material (rock, brick, ferrous metal, etc.).
  • Fire-extinguishing equipment (extinguisher, garden hose, sand) is readily available.
  • Only clean burning wood and charcoal is used (you may not burn leaves, brush, grass, tree branches, building materials, rubbish etc.).
  • The fire must be at least 25' from any combustible structure (house, deck, fence, shed).
  • Adult supervision is required while having a recreational fire.
  • All fires must be extinguished by midnight.
  • Fires are not allowed if winds exceed 15 miles per hour.
  • If anyone calls and complains about the smoke, you will be asked to extinguish the fire.
  • All fires are subject to discontinuance by the Fire or Police Department.

State-issued burning restrictions/bans may impact this policy.

Please be mindful that high winds and/or dry conditions require extra attention and safety for even the smallest fire. If in doubt, put it out.

These rules and more information can be found in Lakeville City Ordinance No. 983. Citations could be issued for non-compliance.
