Calgary Fire Department urges caution with outdoor open flames

After a long winter, Calgarians are preparing to enjoy some much-deserved warm weather. To help reduce outdoor fire risks during the spring and summer seasons, the Calgary Fire Department is urging caution when using outdoor open flames, including barbeques and backyard fire pits.

“When we refer to outdoor open flames in the city, we are talking about backyard fire pits, outdoor fire places, and wood burning ovens or chimeneas,” says Carol Henke, public information officer for Calgary Fire, noting that “all fire pits should use a spark guard according to The City’s Community Standards Bylaw.”

When enjoying or building an outdoor fire pit, it is recommended that homeowners:

  • Only burn clean, dry firewood.
  • Never leave the fire pit unsupervised.
  • Have a hose or bucket with water close by to put out the fire
  • Build the fire pit into the ground, on brick or stone, or in a fire-proof container.
  • Place the fire pit two metres away from property lines, house, garage, or fence.
  • Avoid placing the fire pit under any trees, branches, plants or other overhanging structures that can catch fire.

Throughout the spring and summer seasons, the Calgary Fire Department will monitor weather, moisture indices in fuels and the Air Quality Health Index to determine if fire bans are necessary.

For more information on Calgary fire bans and fire safety advisories, visit calgary.ca/firebans or contact 3-1-1.

Remember to always call 9-1-1 to report a fire.
