If a neighbor has a fire pit that smokes up your property and house, is that a "nuisance" or "health concern?"

The short answer, nuisance.  Depending upon regulations set by the local municipality, this infringement could be more than just a nuisance.  A resident experiencing this problem has the option to petition the municipality code or ordinance departments to address the issue.

Locally, it is permissible for residents to burn yard debris including purchased wood during the fall, winter and spring.  There are restrictions during the summer when the ozone reaches unhealthy levels.
