  3. Outdoor fires shall be contained in a noncombustible container, covered with a wire screen of ½ inch or smaller mesh, or in another suitable noncombustible container, except for fires of leaves, brush and/or natural, untreated wood, which need not be confined to or covered by a noncombustible container.

127-7: Extinguishing unsafe fires.  It is a violation of this article for any person to allow any fire to burn under adverse weather conditions or unsupervised or other unsafe manner.  Any such fire may be extinguished by any official of the Borough-designated fire company or extinguish immediately upon request of such official.
