WHAT IS AN "APPROVED" FIRE PIT"?

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN OPEN BURNING AND "APPROVED" FIRE APPLIANCES. THE OHIO FIRE CODE DEFINES OPEN BURNING AS "THE BURNING OF MATERIALS WHEREIN PRODUCTS OF COMBUSTION ARE EMITTED DIRECTLY INTO THE AMBIENT AIR WITHOUT PASSING THROUGH A STACK OR CHIMNEY FROM AN ENCLOSED CHAMBER."MOST OF THE COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE "FIRE PITS" ARE CONSIDERED ENCLOSED WHEN USED WITH ALL SCREENS AND CHIMNEYS IN PLACE. USING ONE OF THE "FIRE PITS" WITHOUT SCREENS IN PLACE IS CONSIDERED OPEN BURNING. FOLLOW ALL MANUFACTURE'S INSTRUCTION FOR THE SAFE USE OF THESE "FIRE PITS"
