The fire pit owner is responsible should a fire start within a nearby area associated with the fire pit. Open burning (not enclosed in a burn container) is not allowed unless a permit is acquired from the Chief of the West Fargo Fire Department. This permit can only be used for cleanup of natural debris and is not intended for recreational purposes.
To inquire about open burning, please contact the West Fargo Fire Department.
