Intent of Ordinance/Code
The primary intent of the City Ordinance is to allow firewood to be used for cooking and recreational fires (campfires) on the property of one and two family homes only. All fire located on one and two family properties must comply with the definition of a recreational fire or a permit is required to be obtained from The Fort Atkinson Fire Dept.

The ordinance does not allow open or recreational fires on any other types of properties without first obtaining a permit from Fort Atkinson Fire Department.

Please contact the Fort Atkinson Fire Departments Fire Prevention/Inspection Division if there are any questions.
