Sometimes enough heat is generated within substances, such as in a pile of oily rags, to cause them to burst into flames. This is called spontaneous combustion. Certain bacteria in moist hay can cause the temperature to rise rapidly, causing the hay to burn. These sources of heat cannot be ignored when considering fire prevention and safety, and in deciding what to burn in your outdoor fire pit.

You will also have to build a fire before lighting it, keep it stoked, extinguish it and then finally clear out the ashes.

Safety - Gas burning fire pits do not produce sparks or flying embers and have a flame which you can control. When you switch off a gas fire pit at the end of the evening you know the fire is completely extinguished. Wood burning fires require a bit more care and attention before retiring to bed with peace of mind. Many gas burning models come with glass or Pyrex shields.
