Winter Fire Safety Tips

With the cold weather and the high usage of fireplaces during the winter, please take a few moments to review these fire safety tips:

Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home.  Test smoke alarm batteries every month and change them at least once a year.  Consider installing a 10-year lithium battery-powered smoke alarm, which is sealed so it cannot be tampered with or opened. 

Make sure wood stoves are properly installed, away from combustible surfaces, have the proper floor support and adequate ventilation.  Never use flammable liquids (such as gasoline) to start or accelerate fire. 

Have your furnace and chimney professionally inspected annually and cleaned if necessary.  Chimney tar build-up is a common cause of chimney fires.

Use a glass or metal screen in front of your fireplace to prevent sparks igniting nearby carpets or furniture.

Never thaw frozen pipes with a blow torch or other open flame.  Use hot water or a UL listed device such as a hand-held dryer.

Dispose of hot ashes in metal containers placed away from the house. Never use the range or oven to heat your home. If there is a fire hydrant near your home, keep it clear of snow for easy access.  

Install a battery-operated carbon monoxide detector near the area to be heated by a stove or fireplace and near sleeping areas. Test them monthly, and replace batteries at least once a year.

Make an escape plan.  Know two ways out of every room.  Practice your escape plan with your whole family at least twice a year.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the Fire Marshal at : 585-336-6097.

Outdoor Recreational Fires

GUIDELINES FOR RECREATIONAL OUTDOOR FIRES:

Requests for outdoor recreational fires have become a popular activity and concern within the Town of Irondequoit, especially with recent marketing and sales of portable outdoor fireplaces, made of metal, ceramic and like materials.

Recreational fires are a PRIVILEGE and have been allowed for special occasions and limited recreational purposes. A recreational fire, which causes property damage, personal injury or is deemed a NUISANCE, may be cause for further legal actions by the Fire Marshal or the Police. Any fire causing the fire department or police department to be called may be considered by the responding official as a nuisance fire. Nuisance fires must be extinguished. Please contact the Office of the Fire Marshal at (585) 336-6097, if you have any questions regarding this fire safety concern.

The Office of the Fire Marshal has allowed burning for recreational purposes consistent with state, county and local codes and laws, using the following guidelines: 

SAFETY must always be followed.

  • Fire can not create a nuisance. Smoke and/or odors may be considered a nuisance.
  • Fires must be of the same size as in fireplaces (no larger than 3 feet in Diameter – no taller than 2 feet in height), located 25 feet from combustible structures (houses, fences, sheds, garages, wooden decks, similar structures) and conducted on non-combustible surfaces.
  • Materials for burning must be clean seasoned firewood (wet wood, fresh cut wood, painted or stained wood creates smoky conditions and is not allowed to be burned).
  • Competent adult supervision must be at site while fire is burning. Competent adult supervision is someone over 18 years of age, not impaired by drugs, alcohol or having a medical or mental condition which would impair their ability to take proper actions if required.

  • A source of water must be available to control or extinguish any fire (charged garden hose hooked up to a water supply, multiple pains of water or a 4-A rating fire extinguisher).

  • No new materials may be added to a fire after 10 PM. FIRE MUST BE EXTINGUISHED BEFORE ABANDONING.

  • NEW – Outdoor portable fireplaces made of metal, ceramic and like materials must follow these same rules and not be placed on any combustible materials (decks, porches, tables, ect.) They may not be located less than 15 feet from a combustible structure and must be extinguished before abandoning.

NOTE: Any fuel not in compliance with "Clean seasoned firewood" is not viewed as a recreational fire even if the other guidelines are being followed. (A wolf in sheep's clothing is still a wolf)
