Fire and fireworks

For advice on fire safety, please contact Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service.

Bonfires and burning outdoors

There are no laws against having a bonfire, but there are laws for the nuisance they can cause. You can complain to us if smoke is causing a nuisance and we can take necessary action such as issuing an ‘abatement notice’ if a neighbour’s bonfire is causing a nuisance.

You can also complain if there is black smoke. This may be an offence that can be dealt with under the Clean Air Act 1993.
