Public notice: Sturgeon County Issues Fire Restriction

Sturgeon County has issued a Fire Restriction effective immediately due to the dry conditions. Effective immediately all existing fire permits for burning are suspended. This includes burn barrels and incinerators.

No new fire permits or fireworks permits will be issued until further notice.

“Residents who have conducted burning are asked to check their res and ensure they are completely extinguished,” said Fire Chief Pat Mahoney.

Fire pits for warming or cooking purposes (back yards fire pits) may still be used. They must be three metres from buildings, property lines, other combustible materials and have a spark arresting grate.

Use of propane and gas BBQ’s are still permitted.

Sturgeon County urges everyone to use extreme caution when working or driving in grassy areas, be mindful of hot exhaust and keep vehicles/UTV’s clean and free of debris.
