Check with your town. Some may, some may not. There may be restrictions on size, etc. as if over a certain size then yes.

I purchased an outdoor fireplace from Lowes and there was no mention of getting a permit... I just use common sense in placement, don't leave it unattended, and keep the water hose or fire extinguisher handy. I have never had an incident where the fire was a problem.

My answer was geared toweards a permanent outdoor fireplace as opposed to a portable one.

Some towns require a permit for every time you open burn. I did hear of some laws being looked at for the those water boiler furnace things that look like tool sheds.

YOu can use the ones you buy but dont build your own. Then you would need a permit. Call your town hall and fire department to verify
