Autumn weather often means enjoying a backyard fire. Roseville allows fires for recreation purposes only. Unfortunately, some people try to burn leaves, twigs or small branches in the fire pit.
Open burning is prohibited in Roseville, and state statute prohibits burning yard waste or trash in a fire pit or barbecue. Leaves, twigs and paper can become airborne and spread a fire. Treated or painted wood, wood products and building waste add pollutants to the air.
If you are planning a cookout or campfire, please follow the recreational fire rules:

Fires not complying with the rules listed above are in violation of state statute or local ordinance. In Roseville, call 651-484-1267 if you have concerns about someone burning something illegally. If a fire gets out of hand, call 9-1-1 before attempting to douse the flames.
