List of Local Fire Bans in Effect

Due to the dry conditions several municipalities currently have fire bans in effect.

Huron Shores: 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.

Permits are not required for “campfires”, defined under By-law #14-08, as being a small, contained fire, no greater than 1 metre in diameter and 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 huronshores.ca.

Johnson Township: Fire ban and all burning permits are suspended until further notice as per Fire Chief Ron Smith.
