With fall comes shorter days, quieter nights and the opportunity to enjoy the crisp weather around an outdoor firepit.
To ensure your safety, refrain from using your firepit on any deck, balcony, covered parking or patio, or under any building overhang. Using a minimum of 15 feet from any building structure is the best and safest way to enjoy your fire.

free trick-or-treat bag and glow sticks, while supplies last.

Home Maintenance Tip
When temperatures drop, field mice enjoy warm homes and garages. Limit how long your garage and house doors are open help to keep those uninvited guests out.
