Follow these steps when picking your burning site to promote wildfire safety:
DO NOT build a fire at a site in hazardous, dry conditions. DO NOT build a fire if the campground, area, or event rules prohibit campfires.
FIND OUT if the campground has an existing fire ring or fire pit.
If there is not an existing fire pit, and pits are allowed, look for a site that is at least fifteen feet away from tent walls, shrubs, trees or other flammable objects. Also beware of low-hanging branches overhead.
Note: in some areas digging pits are not allowed because of archaeological or other concerns. Find out the rules in your area please.
