State and local agencies, as well as private owners. The rules are different depending upon who owns the beach.
2. Burn only clean, untreated and unpainted wood is not permitted.
3. Have a bucket available.
4. Don't make the fire any larger than it needs to be to provide warmth and ambiance.
5. Before you leave, EXTINGUISH THE FIRE COMPLETELY.
