Fire Season Has Begun

Posted on Friday, April 01, 2022 08:00 AM

Please be advised that as per Open Air Fire By-law 17-35, holders of valid fire permits may not burn brush, drum and windrow fires between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. from April 1st to October 31st, 2022. This type of burning is limited to the evening during this time of the year because temperatures traditionally get a little cooler and humidity rises at night. Vegetation soaks up some of that moisture, making it a less volatile fuel for wildfires.
