Fire Ban Lifted

0
Small, contained fires for cooking and/or warmth are allowed. Fireworks are not.

Due to the unexpected amount of rain last night and more in the forecast, the Huron Shores Fire Department has lifted the fire ban imposed on June 28th.  Please see the original notice below:

Due to the current dry conditions, effective immediately and until further notice, the Huron Shores Fire Department is imposing a Fire Ban. Small, contained fires for cooking and/or warmth are allowed, however, under Section 1.3 of the Open Air Burning By-law (By-law #14-08), fireworks are NOT permitted.

Open Air Burning Permits are not required for “campfires”, also defined under By-law #14-08, as being a small, contained fire, no greater than 1 metre in diameter with the flames to be no higher than 1 metre (this does not include large bonfires or brush fires).

Under Huron Shores’ current Open Air Burning By-law, campfires ARE permitted when a Fire Ban is imposed.  By-laws governing open air burning vary from municipality to municipality.  If you are unsure of the by-law in your community, contact your municipal office prior to burning.

For more information with respect to Fire Bans and infractions of the by-law, please contact the Municipal Office at 705-843-2033, or visit the Fire Department page of huronshores.ca.
