Can I have a backyard fire pit or chiminea?
Yes. Fire pits and chimineas used for pleasure, cooking, warmth, or similar purposes are allowed within the city limits.

These fires must be attended at all times and kept at least 15 feet away from any structure or combustible material.
Use only clean dry wood or charcoal.
Do not burn yard waste or rubbish.
Fire pits and chimineas must have an approved spark arrestor that is constructed of iron, heavy wire mesh, or other non-combustible material with openings no larger than 1/2 inch.
If the smoke or odor emmissions become offensive or objectionable, you will be required to extinguish the fire.
