Here is an answer to the question of Are fire pits safe on decks?

Never put a fire pit on a wooden deck.

The last fire pit I saw had a metal tag on it that said to keep it at least 10 feet from anything made of wood.

If your deck is in your yard, set out some flagstones on which to rest it, at least 10 feet from your wooden steps and wooden fence.
