SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – For years, local businesses have benefitted from the ounce of flexibility allowed by vague firepit laws in San Diego. However, a recent movement in local government to clarify existing laws would eliminate business for these companies.
Currently, specific set-ups outside of city firepits allow for wood burning fires on the sand. New laws would ban all wood-burning fires not within city-installed fire pits.
The number of fire pits on beaches has dwindled in the past few decades, bringing business to local enterprises that specialized in delivering legal fire setups to beachy gatherings.
KUSI’s Allie Wagner went live with members from one such company to talk about how new fire pit laws could affect the San Diego community.
