Recreational fires are permitted in Dublin. However, they must be confined to an approved outdoor container if they are within 50 feet of a structure. Approved containers must be at least 15 feet from any combustible surface. Fires must not exceed 3′ wide and 2′ high. Always have a container of water nearby and a garden hose on standby before starting a fire. To prevent smoke scares, let your neighbors know when you will be burning so they are not surprised when they see or smell smoke.
