Notes and disclaimers about beach fires:

-A beach fire is defined as an outdoor fire burning wood materials other than rubbish on a beach where the fuel being burned is not contained in an incinerator, outdoor fireplace, barbeque grill or barbeque pit and has a total fuel area of 30 inches or less in diameter and 24 inches in height from natural grade for pleasure, religious, ceremonial, cooking, warmth or similar purposes.

-Beach fires shall not be started less than 50 ft from any beach grass, vegetation, tent, fence, building, or permanent structure. NOTE: fires of greater dimension are considered “Bon FIres” and “Open Burning” and as such require a Burning Permit. An unauthorized open burning or bon fire will result in the immediate issuance of a citation.

-Beach Fire Rules: Only clean wood, no chemically-treated wood or wood with paint or nails. No metal, glass or plastic shall be placed or thrown into the fire. No beach fire shall be left unattended. No beach fire may be started, kindled, or maintained if the prevailing wind velocity exceeds 20 mph. A pail or bucket must be kept within 10 ft of the beach fire at all times. Must be only between 5pm and 11:59pm. It must be completely extinguished with water. No beach fire shall be buried with sand. All debris must be removed and disposed of property.
