Lazy Summer nights.
Who doesn't love sitting outside in the summer and enjoying an outdoor fire?
Those lazy night of summer can be fun but don't get lazy when it comes to the fire.
When you are building a fire pit. Make sure it's downwind of your camp site or any backyard items.
ideally you should clear out a 10 foot radius of space around your pit. Make sure there isn't any tree limbs hanging down as well.
Before you build the fire make sure the weather conditions are in the safe zone. Dry, windy weather for example can be a bad time to have an outdoor fire.
When you have finished enjoying the fire make sure it's out. Even if the embers are gray it doesn't mean it's safe.
Pour water on the fire and then stir it with a shovel to test for any hot spots
Summertime is a great time to be lazy but not when it comes to the fire.
