NOTE: It is illegal to incinerate household waste, including paper products, treated wood, plastics, rubber materials, tires, pesticides, paints and aerosols. They certainly exist. I don`t know what they are, but I do know, through the sale of many homes, that anything that is a permanent element of the property requires a permit/CO. These include things like a gas grill that runs on a natural gas pipeline and a generator that is firmly attached to the property. You will need to contact the city (assuming you are not in an incorporated village) – City of Hempstead or North Hempstead, etc. Do not let fireplace fires burn. Unattended recreational fires are illegal and incredibly dangerous. Homeowners should never let fireplace fires burn unattended or let fires slowly go out overnight. Always turn off the fire before entering and stop adding wood to the fire about an hour before planning to enter. Water or sand can be poured over the ashes to extinguish the fire. Once homeowners are sure a fire has been extinguished, the ashes can be scattered to ensure that there are no more burners burning. If this is the case, restart the removal process.
Let`s say you live in Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester or Orange counties. First, check with your local community to see if open fires are legal and, if so, if there are any licensing requirements. Once you`ve determined it`s legal in your area, it`s time to make sure your insurance policy offers the right protection. (If you are a tenant, co-op or condo, make sure the fireplace is allowed in your building.) A night around the fireplace is a summer tradition in many households. Security must be as much a part of these traditions as the S`mores. The coverages of a standard home insurance policy are likely to provide protection against the risks associated with a home, but it depends on the type of home you have and the coverages of your policy. Keep the home at a safe distance from home. Fireplaces must be located at a safe distance from home at all times, especially when in use. Home design experts recommend keeping fireplaces at least 10 to 20 feet away from a home or other structure, such as a shed or freestanding garage.
The farther away the fire is from homes and other structures, the less likely these structures are to catch fire. NOTE: Piles larger than 8 feet in diameter require 1) Florida Forest Service approval, 2) must have removal equipment, and 3) meet additional recoil requirements. In addition, the National Fire Protection Association recommends: Clean up seasonal debris. It can be tempting to burn seasonal debris lying in the fireplace during the first S`mores session of the season. However, burning debris poses a serious safety risk, as embers can easily be blown out of the fireplace and set fire to nearby trees or shrubs or even a house. The National Fire Protection Association points out to homeowners that embers blowing from a backyard fire pose the same threat to homes as if they came from a wildfire. Do not allow fireplaces to burn near flammable materials. The campfire stacks at a safe distance from the fireplace while it is in operation. It may be convenient to store firewood right next to the fireplace while the fire burns, but this increases the risk of embers landing on the firewood and starting a fire outside the pit. Check the weather forecast before starting the fire.
Windy weather increases the risk of embers blowing and eventually landing on the house, other structures around the property or trees. If the weather forecast predicts gusts of wind, light a fire another night. DO NOT place the fireplace under trees or next to shrubs. While fireplaces should be kept at a safe distance from a home and other structures, it is important that they are not placed under trees or next to shrubs. Shrubs and low branches can easily catch embers and ignite, so make sure that the foci are not placed in places that increase this risk.

Agriculture, forestry, land clearing, pile and land incineration all require an incineration permit from the Florida Forest Service. First of all, don`t try to build a home yourself. It may seem simple enough, but some types of stone or bricks can explode when they reach a certain temperature. Check with officials in your city and county to see if there are any restrictions in your area. If you use a fireplace or similar appliance in an area where they are prohibited and your home is damaged or someone is injured by the fire, your home, tenant, co-op or condominium insurance policies will not cover your losses.
