SERVPRO of Framingham Talks About Campfire Safety
Enjoying a campfire is one of the most enjoyable parts of camping. A campfire that is not properly built, maintained, and extinguished can quickly become a hazard. It's important to understand how to safely enjoy your campfire.
- Know the rules: Before you strike a match, make sure you know the fire regulations of the campground or wilderness area.
- Use the pit: Most campgrounds provide a fire pit to build a campfire. If a pit is provided, this is the only place you should build a campfire. If not, dig a fire pit in an open area away from overhanging branches and power lines.
- Build a safe campfire: Start the fire with dried leaves or grass that will easily catch fire. Next, add small twigs and sticks that are less than an inch. As the fire builds, add the largest pieces of wood to the fire. This keeps the fire burning for a longer period of time.
Keep in mind that your fire does not have to be roaring. In fact, a small fire surrounded by rocks will do the job. Always make sure to take caution whenever you are creating a fire.
