Campfires are tricky.
With so many smog alerts in Montreal, outdoor campfires have essentially been banned everywhere in the city and in must of northern Quebec.
With good reason, campfires often cause wildfires especially in dry areas and the wood you burn could actually be a ticking time bomb for the nearby area.
The most important things to remember when lighting campfires is this:
- Make sure your fire isn't built close to a forest.
- Make sure your fire-pit is fenced off with rocks.
- Make sure there are no flammable materials anywhere nearby.
- Make sure the wood you burn is from that area. (Don't transport firewood as it may spread harmful insects)
- Most importantly, leave no trace behind.
- And don't forget the marshmallows.
Other than that, be safe and have fun.
