What can you do under a burn ban?

Make sure you follow the rules here.


Outdoor campfires or bonfires are prohibited.

LPG and natural gas grills and charcoal-fired cooking outside in a grilling receptacle are permitted provided that the activity is conducted over a non-flammable surface and at least five feet from flammable vegetation.

Coleman-type pressurized stoves are exempt.

However, any fire resulting from grilling or the use of one of these cookers or stoves is still an illegal fire.
