All outside burning is prohibited, including brush and grass burning, backyard fire pits, or cook stoves that use solid fuels (wood or charcoal).
Burn permits also have been cancelled.
Barbecues that use propane are permitted with extreme caution.
The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry currently has a Restricted Fire Zone in effect for all of the Northwest Region.
