Yes. All charcoal grills, chimineas, fire pits, and patio heaters are allowed within the city limits. Chimineas and fire pits should be placed at least 15 feet from any combustibles. Do not place on wood decks, in enclosed patio decks or under overhangs. You should have a fire extinguisher or water hose available at all times. Do not burn garbage, leaves, rubbish, or rotten wood that will smoke. Fire pits and chimineas should have a spark arrestor screen while being used to control sparks and embers. While operating chimineas or fire pits, if the smoke or odor emission becomes offensive or objectionable, you will be required to extinguish the fire. IFC 307.1.1 (City Ordinance 8-01-06)
Burning outside the city limits must be directed to the Rural Fire Department at (701)258-5792 and the State Health Department at (701)328-5188.
We recommend that if you use natural gas, propane or solid fuel (wood or coal) appliances in your home, you install a carbon monoxide detector. Carbon Monoxide is an invisible, colorless, tasteless gas that kills and injures thousands each year. The symptoms can vary from person to person and depend on how much you were exposed to. Mild exposures can cause slight headaches, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, or flu-like symptoms. More severe exposures can cause severe throbbing headaches, drowsiness, confusion, and fast heart rate. Extreme exposures can cause unconsciousness, convulsions and death. The symptoms can vary from person to person and depend on how much you were exposed to.

Once the installation is complete, the installer is required to contact Ron Kunda, Fire Marshal, for an appointment to complete an acceptance test for the system before it can be used by the facility. Read On
Within the incorporated limits of the City of Bismarck, the ISO Public Protection Classification is 1. The rating scale is 1-10, with a rating of 1 being the best achievable rating. The rating is based on the capability of the community’s fire department equipment, training, and staffing, as well as its water supply infrastructure and 911 operations. The rating is one factor many insurance companies use to determine property insurance premium rates. Of the communities in the US rated by ISO, less than 1% have a rating of 1. See the website at ISO for more information on the Public Protection Classification (PPC) program. ISO Website
