Notable fire activity

A wildfire bulletin was released on June 15. It describes high levels of wildfire activity in the Old Crow and Ross River districts over the previous weekend.

There are no notable fires right now.

Burning restrictions

There are no fire restrictions in place for Yukon communities.

Yukoners are reminded to exercise caution when using fire; a wildfire can still catch and spread quickly. Do not build campfires larger than needed, and ensure all fires are completely out before leaving them.

A burn permit is required from April 1 to September 30 in all areas of Yukon. You must also check with the local municipal authority for additional restrictions on burning within the municipality. All burn permits are automatically suspended when the local fire danger rating is moderate, high, or extreme.
