House smells like camp fire due to pits

I do not understand why people in the city would be allowed to have fire pits in their yards. During the summer months, my neighbor and I use window fans to cool our houses. Because of these fire pits we have to shut our windows at night so our houses don’t smell like a camp fire. I actually look forward to rainy nights so I can keep my windows open.

There should not be a “loophole” that allows fires for cooking. If someone wants to cook outside, let them use a grill.

I feel the fire pits should not be allowed in the city unless they have ventilation that doesn’t allow the smoke to disturb the rest of the community.
