Residential Fire Pits and Outdoor Wood Burning Appliances
Within the City of Delta, outdoor wood burning appliances are not permitted; this includes fire pits, wood stoves, chimineas and other appliances. Different restrictions are in place for other municipalities in the Metro Vancouver and Fraser Valley Regional Districts.
All residential backyard burning, campfires and cooking fires remain banned year-round as per Delta Fire Regulation Bylaw 5855, 2001, Section 5.4.
Please report all illegal fires to 9-1-1.
Delta Fire Regulation Bylaw No. 5855 includes, but is not limited to, regulations on burning in public places, prohibition of open air burning, camp fires, agricultural and land clearing and fire permits. Review Bylaw No. 5855 for a complete list of regulations.
In addition to municipal requirements, all industry, trades, businesses and agricultural landowners are now required to first apply to Metro Vancouver for an Open Burning Approval prior to obtaining a permit from Delta. These approvals include requirements to minimize air emissions from open burning.
