I feel like a prisoner in my own home! My neighbors, too, have a fire pit in their back yard. So as soon as the weather starts to turns nice, when we can finally go out and sit in the yard, or just open the house up to breathe the fresh air, we are forced to close the doors and windows and turn the air conditioning on. 

Because of the smoke that comes from their fire pit, it seems to smother our house inside and out. They also have a pool, which turns the weekends into a beach party, again sending us packing into the house with all the cigarette smoking and loud talking and music. Yes they burn on weekends also. 

I feel that if people in general would respect their surroundings and neighbors we wouldn’t even be discussing this issue. That is not the world we live in today. Therefore, I feel that the village needs to keep in place the ordinance that prohibits fire pits. 

I also was not aware of this ordinance. If I had known, I would have called the village and voiced my concerns, bringing the total higher than the 112 complaints listed in your article.
