Can I have a camp fire or bonfire at my beach party?

Camp fires or bonfires are permitted but they must be contained in or on a metal surface such as a barbecue. It is illegal to burn the wood directly on the sand. Once the camp fire party is finished the wood must be doused with generous amounts of sea water to extinguish the burning and heat and then the wood deposited in the trash can. Under no circumstances must the hot wood be buried under the sand as it can burn the soles of people's feet.
