Questions About Other Types of Open Burning

Are there certain restrictions for campfires, bonfires, and other ceremonial fires?

If I have camp fires and fires used solely for outdoor cooking and other recreational purposes, or for ceremonial occasions, or for human warmth and comfort, and the North Carolina Forest Service has banned burning in my area, does this also constitute an air quality violation?

Is my church or business allowed to burn leaves, tree branches and yard trimmings?
