Many years ago Pittsburgh was known around the world as the "Smoky City" due to the extensive emissions from our mills and factories. The pollution was so bad that on some days you couldn't see from one end of the street to another. But, right after Word War II, the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County passed a number of ordinances to control air pollution, including restrictions on outdoor burning.
At one time open fires in Allegheny County were virtually abolished, but over the years there have been exceptions made to those restrictions at the county and municipal levels.
Unfortunately, there is a great deal of confusion about what is allowed and not allowed when it comes to outdoor fires. To clarify the matter, Township Council has drafted a new ordinance (Number 681) regarding restrictions and regulations on open burning. Visit our open fires / burning webpage for details.
