An outdoor firepit is shown. We restore fire damage 24-hours a day in San Diego.

In San Ysidro, many backyards have fire pits. Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro wants everyone to be safe around fire pits and offers this helpful information from The County of San Diego Fire-Rescue Department:

Recreational fires are outdoor fires (NOT an incinerator, outdoor fireplace, barbeque grill, or barbeque pit). They are permitted if they have a total fuel area of three feet or less in diameter and two feet or less in height, and are used for pleasure, cooking, warmth, or similar purposes.

Recreational fires are permitted unless it is offensive or objectionable because of smoke or odor or when conditions make such a fire hazardous.

A recreational fire of a maximum of 3 feet in diameter and 2 feet in height must be a minimum of 25 feet from a structure. A fire in an approved container can be no less than 15 feet from a structure. Conditions that might cause the fire to spread must be eliminated.

The fire must be constantly attended while burning. A fire extinguisher or other fire extinguishing equipment (dirt, sand, garden hose, water barrel)  shall be available for immediate use.

Portable outdoor fireplaces are to be used in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and shall not be operated within 15 feet of a structure or combustible material.
