RESERVE TOWNSHIP OUTDOOR FIRE / OPEN BURN REGULATIONS
   
     
Whether you know it or not, your fire is spreading. The smoke from your outdoor fire is wafting into your neighbors’ yards; it’s passing over their swing sets and drifting through their windows. Problem is, it’s carrying a lot of dangerous chemicals with it.

Outdoor fires are regulated in Allegheny County because they impact our health. So, use this site to learn how to burn safer -- but keep in mind that while you can decrease the impact an outdoor fire has on your health and the health of your neighbors, the safest fire is no fire at all.
