If it goes terribly wrong, you'll be the first to know but we've had many experiences with far less advanced fire pits (more of a fireplace really) and I'm confident nothing will happen. Should something happen however it isn't close to anything and we have plenty of time to react. Unless cinder blocks are highly flammable or explosive...

They can explode since they have air pockets in them.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

Idk about "explode," but I have seen and heard them "pop" and send embers up. Made me jump, but no harm done.

Also, if it's more than a temporary fire pit, I would absolutely recommend fire brick. Just my 2 cents...

Sounds about right, decent load lol. But yeah like they said any type of brick that is not firebrick is worthless for a fire pit. Ive never seen them cause any harm, just pop and crumble. What we do for a border to build the coals up is use punky logs. They last for a while. Eventually once they get too charred up, you can just toss them into the pit and start again. Best solution that we've come up with. Then again we have some pretty unordinary fires

well maybe not worthless, just less than optimal. but a hell of a lot cheaper than firebrick.

I got back out of my Jeep and took pictures of the tires and his license plate then I went into the restaurant after him and asked him where he got the tires acting as though I was interested in buying some he told me that "I don't remember where i bought them but it was probably discount tire" but the tires are a Walmart exclusive model ( Goodyear wrangler authority) so I went back to work and was going to report it to the police so I went to pull up the pic of his license plate to give them the number and only the picture withe the plate number was gone my phone never saved it. I still reported it with a detailed description of the Jeep an a description of the man but I'm sure nothing will happen without the plate number, but now I know exactly what Jeep I'm looking for and I will get the plate number and give it to the police........and nothing will happen lol
Post picks of the jeep on here and let people know to look out for it
