Effective April 3, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has imposed a Restricted Fire Zone (Provincial Fire Ban) under the Forest Fire Prevention Act. By law, you cannot have an outdoor fire in a Restricted Fire Zone. This includes all burning, including grass, debris and campfires, even when using an outdoor fire grate, fire place or fire pit.
If you need heat for cooking or warmth in a Restricted Fire Zone, you can use: a gas stove, a propane stove, or a portable liquid fuel or gas stove that can be turned off easily by closing a valve or lid. The stove must be at least 1 metre away from any flammable material.
Portable charcoal equipment (e.g., BBQs, Hibachis, etc.) are illegal for use during a Restricted Fire Zone except close to a dwelling that you legally own or occupy or in an organized campground. Your charcoal installation must be within 100 metres of the building, at least 1 metre from any flammable material, and completely extinguished when done.
