Wood burning fire pits should not be used under a covered patio. Wood produces thick, toxic smoke and if there’s not enough air flow, it can build up quickly and deplete the space of oxygen. A fire pit with a wide burning area like this one needs to be used in a clear, open space.

When should you not use a fire pit?
Don’t use flammable fluids (gasoline, lighter fluid, etc.) to light or relight fires. Don’t wear flammable clothing (like nylon) or any loose-fitting clothing.
