  • How do you know they're all burning the wrong thing. How can you tell it's an open fire? I have a multi-fuel burner not far from the street you reported. I only burn smokeless briquettes but the suppliers deliver wet bags and it's more Smokey than dry fuel. Burning kiln dried wood is hotter than briquettes and is legal but burns too quickly so it's cheaper to burn wickes briquettes. Burning pallets is not good and the chimney sweep will be able to tell they're burning the wrong stuff (if they get the chimney swept). You should report it to the right body and not here. I've used this exact service before and you'll be lucky to get an outcome if it's the same. DEFRA and Environmental Health I think you need. Anonymous could just be malicious. All the best Mr/Mrs anonymous from Andy. Guiseley
