Beach Fire Safety

 Don’t bury hot charcoals in sand. While sand might extinguish the flames, coals can smolder for up to 24 hours. Sand locks in heat, making smoldering coals even hotter.  Coals should be extinguished by drenching them in water, waiting five minutes and drenching them again. The most risk occurs when hot coals are buried in the sand, creating a hidden danger.
