You don’t have to make notification for these kinds of fires
In 2021, the South Carolina Forestry Commission sought a change in the state law law governing the kinds of fires for which citizens in unincorporated areas must make notification. The change to the “notification & precautions law,” as it is commonly called, specifies that fires in grills, portable outdoor fireplaces, permanent fire pits and chimineas are exempt from the notification rules.
Read the actual reference from the SC Code of Laws below:
Except as otherwise provided by law, the provisions of this chapter do not apply to a fire used for the preparation of food for immediate consumption, or fires burned in portable outdoor fireplaces, chimineas, or permanent fire pits constructed of stone, masonry, metal, or other noncombustible material that conforms with all applicable South Carolina fire codes so long as a person has cleared around the area to be burned and has immediately available sufficient equipment and personnel to adequately secure the fire and prevent its spread.SECTION 48-35-55. Fire regulation exemptions.
Debris burning, prescribed burning or conducting a land-clearing burn? You MUST notify the South Carolina Forestry Commission before commencing.
No need to notify…
Grilling, sitting by a fire pit or portable fireplace, or enjoying a chiminea? There’s no need to notify the South Carolina Forestry Commission.
