Open-Air Fire Ban

Posted by TL on July 6, 2018

Effective immediately, the Huron County Fire Chiefs have declared an open-air fire ban in Huron County due to lack of significant rainfall and forecasted hot dry conditions, along with the Provincial forest and wild-land fire indicators at extreme levels there will be no open-air burning permitted in Huron County until further notice.

All open-air fires are prohibited during a fire ban, including those properties that have an Open-Air Fire Permit. This ban applies to agricultural burns, brush pile burns, recreational fires, burn barrels, outdoor fireplaces/chimineas or any other fires set in open air. Municipal bylaws have set fines and surcharges for those found to be in violation of the ban.

The only exceptions to this ban are cooking fires within approved campgrounds. Cooking fires are permitted on campsites from noon (12:00pm) to midnight (12:00am) only. After midnight, all fires must be completely extinguished.

If you discover a fire in the open, it is very important that you report fires immediately by calling 9-1-1.
