Special fire restrictions

There are no special fire restrictions in place right now.

General conditions

You are legally required to hold a valid burn permit to light an open fire between April 1 and September 30. This includes:

  • lighting an open fire for any purpose other than a campfire, which does not require a permit
  • burning grass, debris or brush in a burn barrel
  • burning on all public and private lands

Be careful 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.

What do these ratings mean?
We rate the fire danger rating to show how dangerous a fire would be if it started. A higher fire danger rating means more dangerous conditions.
What does N/R mean?
N/R means the station is not reporting. Sometimes this happens when it’s too early in the season or the station is being worked on.
