What Are the Requirements for a Fire Pit or Outdoor Fireplace?
If the fire pit has legs and is off the ground, a permit is not required.
If the fire pit will be in or on the ground, you are required to first contact the
New Jersey Forest Fire Service at 973-962-0217.
Gas fire pits require a plumbing permit.
