Outside Fire- North Ocean Pines
Thursday, May 7, 2020

At 10:14am on Wednesday May 6, 2020 , the Ocean Pines Fire Department was alerted for an outside fire. Initial units arrived to find a large pile of wood and other debris on fire between two residences which was quickly extinguished by the homeowner. Chief Grunewald established command and upon further investigation, the homeowner acknowledged to dismantling his shed and burning the pieces in an effort to remove it from his property. The homeowner was informed of OPA regulations around burning and all units quickly returned to service. 


As a reminder, "The Declarations of Restrictions in all sections of Ocean Pines prohibit outside burning of wood, leaves, trash and garbage. However, Ocean Pines believes that when properly installed, safely used and subject to appropriate guidelines for their use a self-contained, wood burning fire pit presents minimal risk to the Community. Therefore, wood burning Fire Pits will be exempt from the outdoor burning restriction. Homeowners must be aware that failure to strictly adhere to these requirements will result in the revocation of their use of, and possibly the removal of, their Fire Pit." Always remeber to never leave fire pits burning unattended and keep children from playing around them. 

Please review the Architectural Review Committee Guidelines, starting at page 16 to learn more about your responsibilities as a homeowner as it relates to Wood Burning Fire Pits and the requirements you must adhere too for Wood Burning Fire Pits:
