What is a Recreational Fire? A recreational fire is an outdoor fire (like a campfire) that has a total area of 3 feet or less wide and 2 feet or less in height. In Wildland Fire Areas, the maximum area is 2 feet or less wide.

Talk to your kids about fire safety.
Teach your children about fire safety and what they can do to prevent fires. The more they know, the less likely they are to cause an accident. Store matches and lighters in a safe place, and out of reach. If clothing catches fire, Stop, Drop, and Roll. Stop. Drop to the ground and cover your face with your hands. Roll over and over or back and forth until the fire is out.
