Fire Pits

Please be diligent when using the fire pits. Fires should not be started when wind and/or weather are such that to do so would be hazardous. A competent adult must be in charge of the fire at all times and must remain in attendance until the fire is completely extinguished; special care must be taken to supervise children around all fires. There must be sufficient resources to prevent a fire from getting beyond control, causing damage or becoming dangerous to life or property. No owner or guest shall cause or permit smoke to be a nuisance to their neighbours or allow smoke to interfere with the rights of other persons’ use and enjoyment of their unit or common property. All fires must be extinguished by 11pm. Forestry rules and closures apply to all fires in the strata.
