The U.S. Forest Service celebrated National Roasted Marshmallow Day the only way a government agency knows how — by telling people how not to roast smores.
“Never start a campfire when there are fire restrictions in place,” the jovial blog post says. “Be sure you are at least 15 feet from tent walls, trees or other flammable objects.” It also recommends keeping children at least 10 feet from the campfire, ensuring that they take no part in dangerous marshmallow melting.
Once minors have been safely sequestered out of sight, “let’s get to the marshmallow basics. Use a roasting stick of at least 30 inches in length.” The post provides no guidance as to the sanitation of said stick, however.
