Can I use a fire-pit in my yard?

Fire-pits are allowed on private property; however, they must comply with the following restrictions:

1) 36" maximum dimension of fire-pit

2) Only seasoned firewood to be burned (no brush)

3) No public nuisance is created

 

 

Any fire on City property, or any fire not complying with the above-stated restrictions, shall require an "Open-Burning Certificate" from the Fire Marshal.  (please refer to City Ordinance - Article V.)

If you wish to apply for an Open-Burning Certificate, please complete the open burn certificate application and deliver to our office located at 72 New Haven Avenue. You also may deliver this form via email at rcolon@ci.milford.ct.us for review. We ask that all applications be delivered at least 72 hours prior the date of the Open Burn Event.

As always, be a good neighbor and ensure your recreational fire does not cause any disturbance or inconvenience for others around you!
