Recreational Fire Guidelines


Recreational fires include the following:


  • Campfires         
  • Barbecues         
  • Cookouts


These recreational fires must be no larger than 2 feet high by 3 feet across and cannot last longer than three hours. Clean, seasoned firewood or the equivalent is the only combustible material permitted for these types of fires. 


As a reminder, the burning of leaves, garbage or other waste products is prohibited in Jackson Township. 


Residents who choose to use a propane grill for their outdoor activities should follow these simple safety tips:


  • Check the supply hose from the LP tank to the grill for leaks

  • Clean excessive grease from the cooking surface

  • Move the grill a safe distance away from your home when in use

  • Remember to shut off the LP tank valve when not in use


If you have any questions regarding recreational fires or propane grill safety, or have fire safety concerns, please feel free to contact the Fire Prevention Bureau at 330-834-3951.
