Be Responsible with Backyard Fires

Rec Fire

The City of Roseville and Ramsey County are partnering with Clean Air Minnesota Environmental Initiative to offer information about ways to reduce air pollution, particularly when it comes to backyard fires.

  • Recreational fires may only be used for cooking or entertainment.
  • Fires cannot be more than three feet in diameter.
  • Fires cannot last more than four hours.
  • Fire must be at least 25 feet from any structure (house, shed, garage).
  • Only charcoal or logs at least one inch in diameter may be burned.
  • Do not burn garbage or treated wood. It can produce toxic fumes.
  • Do not burn wet wood. It creates more smoke.
  • Do not light backyard fires when air pollution health advisories have been issued in the area. Wood smoke can make bad air days worse.
  • Be considerate of your neighbors. Backyard fires may cause health issues for them. Let your neighbors know when you are going to have a fire so they can close their windows. Do not start a fire on windy days.
  • When cleaning up the ashes, let them completely cool, then double-bag the ashes and place them in the trash. Ashes are not accepted at Ramsey County yard waste collection sites.

Visit the American Lung Association’s Learn Before You Burn website to learn more about ways to prevent air pollution.
