Outdoor fire safety

Cooking outdoors is one of the pleasures of summer (and even winter) in Vancouver, but it can pose additional hazards for people and the environment. Whether in your backyard, at a City park, or on a camping trip, take extra caution when cooking or using fire outdoors.

 Wood burning appliances, such as chimneas and fire pits, are not allowed anywhere on private or public property in Vancouver. Report illegal fires to 9-1-1.
