Current Fire Bans

Effective Wednesday July 18th, 2018 the Special Areas Board is imposing a fire restriction to extend throughout Special Areas No. 2, 3 and 4.

The restriction is imposed on all outdoor fires but does not include gas or propane barbeques, or fires contained in campfire facilities in designated camping areas unless specifically posted. Incinerator fires are permitted at a minimum distance of 30 m away from structures and 3 m away from combustible materials.

Existing Controlled Burns may be suspended or cancelled, and no new Controlled Burns will be permitted.

The Towns or Villages or Provincial Parks within the Special Areas handle their own restrictions and should be contacted directly.
