Lake County fire chiefs urge residents to use extreme caution and follow the rules this fall when using outdoor fire pits and open burning landscape waste. Burning must take place during daylight hours, with the best time being midmorning to midafternoon as smoke disperses more quickly. Open burning also must be 25 feet from any structures and 50 feet from school and roads. The maximum size of any burn is 3 feet in diameter and 3 feet high. For more information visit
