Backyard fires are the pits for neighbors

Success - Article sent! close

The fire pit may look nice, but I'm sorry, I do not condone them or other means of burning wood in your backyard. The smoke from them causes pollution, and as a person with COPD I know it is detrimental to anyone who is afflicted. When the weather outside is nice and cool and you want to get fresh air you can't. People have to shut their windows so they don't pollute their houses. What about nonsmokers and children having to inhale that secondhand smoke? I really feel that they should be outlawed.
