Fire on ice

Recommended Posts

As thin as the ice has been I wouldn't want to be to close to that. I have seen people burning on the ice before but don't know if it it legal or not.

I've seen it done a couple times before also, but don't know as to the legality of the issue. I'd contact the DNR and get it straight from them. They've always been very helpful and cordial with my questions. Pretty timely responses too (via e-mail).

We used to have a big party on the ice on the last day that houses could be on the ice and we asked the DNR if we could have a fire on the ice and they told us that it was not legal and was considered littering. He did tell us that we could have a fire in the bottom half of a weber grill as long as we took the ashes with us. We did this for 5 years and were checked every time and as long as the fire was not on the actual ice we were ok. we had three grill bottoms and burned cut up pallets. if you use this method. take off the legs and put small boards under the leg stems to keep the grill level as some ice will melt under the grill. without the boards the grill will tip from the uneven melting. and it's going to be very slippery around the grill with the water that will be around it.

you cannot have a fire directly on the ice as was posted......i have seen fires on the ice and the best method is to use an old barrel or 50 gal drum.......set it up and start it on fire and it ends up looking like a bunch of bums huddled up to stay warm!!!LOL but seriously the 50 gal drum works great!!

another thing we use is an old car hood, bigger fire and easy to hook a wheeler to it if you want to move. also the ashes are easier to pull away to dump, no lifting

Your not going to be littering becuase its not going to go on the ice. Its going to be on the ice, but not direcly on it.. If you understand what i mean.
