You could sue the neighbor under a private nuisance and claim that the activities are interfering with your right to quiet enjoyment of your property.

The judge likely won't prohibit your neighbor from building fires on his/her property (as long as it is not illegal), but the judge can order that the neighbor take measures to reduce/lessen or even eliminate the impact on your property.
