Thank you for bringing your concern to the Peoria Fire Department. Fire pits are legal devices in the City of Peoria. They must be 10 feet away from any combustible items according to the International Fire Code. A person or persons is not required to obtain a recreational burn permit when using a legal device such as a fire pit. However, according the City of Peoria Burn Policy the recreational fire should be extinguished by 11:00 PM. Additionally, the person or person should be using only dry seasoned wood or characoal as a fuel source. If they smoke emissions are objectionable and creating a hazard then the Peoria Fire Department should be contacted by means of the non-emergency number at 674-3131 so that we can come and investigate at the time of occurence. At this point I will have a member of the fire department staff conduct a site visit to determine if the device that is being use is an actual fire pit and hopefully ascertain as to what materials are being burned. Your information will remain confidential.

Occupants were very accepting of Peoria Fire Department staff member's instruction. Any additional diffculty please contact me Division Chief P. Maclin at 309 494-8700.

Associated Issues


I am concerned my neighbor is openly burning with a fire pit in their back yard. It is very close to the buildings, and smoke has come throughout my entire apartment. I fear this is a personal health issue, as well as a city fire hazard.
