Important Safety Instructions:

Read and understand all warnings and precautions prior to operating your fireplace.

When in use, keep outdoor fireplace away from buildings, garages, flammable materials, flammable fluids, and automobiles. The fireplace is not to be used by children. Be sure spark guards are in place while in use. Do not use in windy conditions. Exercise extreme caution when using on a wooden deck and avoid wearing flammable clothing when using the fireplace. Extinguish with lid only after the wood has burned down sufficiently, and remember ashes can remain hot for a long period of time. Do not overload or use to burn leaves, trash, or paper. Use caution and wear heat proof mitts when handling or moving the fireplace. When in use, surfaces will be hot. All fires must be completely extinguished before putting fireplace away. Do not store unit while hot, or with ashes inside. See below for further safety information and usage instructions.
