    using a patio heater or fire bowl/pit on a deck


    Is it safe to use a patio heater or fire bowl/pit on a deck? In what cases is it safe and when it is not safe? What other safety measures should i consider eitherway? How about the best ways to secure it in place and avoid it causing any issues with the deck? Aside from an outright fire risk, can these sort of heat sources damage decking gradually over time? And if so, to what extent is this possible and how I can do something to stop the problem worsening? Thanks and I look forward to hearing back.
