FIRED UP: Safety, legality are key concerns when using fire pits or fireworks

June 30, 2013

WOONSOCKET – Nothing says summer like sitting around the fire pit, sipping a cold brew and shooting off a bottle rocket or two.

But city homeowners who like a good backyard fire with their pyrotechnics should know there are specific rules and regulations when it comes to fireworks and fire pits.

According to Woonsocket Fire Chief Gary Lataille, fire pits and chimineas are legal in the city, as long as certain rules are followed.

“Fire pits are legal to have and there is a city ordinance that outlines these rules and guidelines,” says Lataille.
