North Bay and Area Municipal Fire Bans



As of midnight last night the Ministry of Natural Resources has revoked the Restricted Fire Zone for the North Bay region.  This revocation means that area municipalities now have the discretion to remove the fire restrictions that they have in place.  North Bay, Callender, Nipissing Township, West Nipissing, and Temagami have all removed their municipal fire ban.  Please remember that you are required to have a current  burning permit if you do want to have a fire and you are required to follow the rules that are set out in your burning permit application.  For information on fire restrictions in other municipalities please contact your local fire department. 


The following open burning fire safety rules must be followed:


  1. Burn with a valid permit only
  2. Burning must be supervised by an adult
  3. Never leave the fire unattended
  4. Be respectful of neighbours
  5. Burn only clean dry wood
  6. Only burn if the wind is less than 15km/hr
  7. Be certain to completely extinguish your fire when you are finished


Have a fire safe day!!!!!
