Fire Pit Ignites Wood Deck – 60K in Damages is The Result

DO NOT USE FIRE PITS ON DECKS! DO NOT USE FIRE PITS ON DECKS! 
A family escaped with smoke damage to the interior and about 60k in dagaes to their deck and exterior of the home when embers from a fire pit on the wood deck apparently were blown out onto the deck. The deck ignited and the siding did to. Lucky these people weren’t killed…
From wkbn.com 
“The Girard Fire Department says the family had been burning wood in a fire pit on the wooden deck on Sunday night. They believe that wind may have kicked up an ember in the ashes and started the blaze.”
