Due to dry conditions, the County of Vermilion River has issued a partial fire ban. Only recreational and incinerator fires are permitted, and these recreational and incinerator fires must be contained, supervised and fully extinguished when completed.
All other fires are banned and all previously issued permits are cancelled for the duration of the ban. The county says conditions of fire permits and fire bans must be followed and failure to do so will result in a minimum penalty of $500. The county asks everyone to ensure all previously permitted fires are completely extinguished and all smoking material is disposed of in a burn-proof container.
