There are no current fire restrictions in Summit County.  A backyard fire permit application can be found here.
What does the fire danger mean?

The Fire District does not allow control (slash) burning from Memorial Day through Labor Day or when the fire danger is HIGH, VERY HIGH, or EXTREME.  A permit is required to have a control burn and can be applied for through our Community Connect platform.
 
Recreational (camp) fires are allowed within the District.  A permit is required to have a recreational fire on private property throughout all areas of Summit County and can be applied for through our Community Connect platform.

We recommend you refrain from having a recreational fire when the fire danger is HIGH, VERY HIGH, or EXTREME or when there is a Red Flag or Fire Weather advisory.
