Recreational Fires May Be A "Nuisance"

Back To News

Red Wing city ordinance section 1019, subdivision 5 allows residents to enjoy rec fires within city limits without a permit as long as regulations are adhered to. 

One of the reulations state that officials may require burning to be discontinued if nuisance calls are received. 

For purposes of this section, the term "nuisance" refers to anything that affects the general public and is injurious to health, or indecent or offensive to the senses, or an obstruction to the free use of property, so as to interfere with the comfortable enjoyment of life or property.
