Summer has finally arrived, and so has outdoor fires. We would like to remind you that being courteous to your neighbors can go a long way. Some neighbors may have respiratory problems and may not be able to tolerate the smoke. Some neighbors like to sleep with their windows opened. Try to work out a solution to these problems. Also take into consideration the time of day when enjoying your fire.
