Fire Pits

The recent accidental fire in Avalon has prompted questions regarding outdoor fire pits.

Wood burning fire pits of no more than 3′ in diameter require (by New Jersey fire code) at least 25′ clearance from all buildings (including garages/sheds) and the property line; and are not permitted on decks or wood patios, or under the overhang of a deck or roof above.  A chimenea style wood fireplace requires a 15′ clearance (the chimney allows for a different classification).

With the average lot size on the island of 50′ X 110′, the clearance requirement is almost impossible to meet.  And, if a complaint is made by a neighbor regarding a fire pit (even one   located within the clearance requirements), the offending property owner must extinguish the fire.

Gas fueled fire pits/outdoor fireplaces are not as restricted because they have a controlled flame.
