The Special Areas Board is imposing a Fire Restriction for all of Special Areas.
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 30m away from structures and 3m away from combustible materials.
Existing Controlled Burns may be suspended on cancelled, and no new Controlled Burns will be permitted.
The Town, Villages or Provincial Parks with the Special Areas handle their own restrictions and should be contacted directly.
