submitted by Sturgeon County

Sturgeon County has issued a “Fire Restriction” effective at 3:00 p.m., May 21, 2019.

No new burn permits or fireworks permits will be issued. All current fire and or fireworks permits issued are suspended until further notice.

All outdoor fires presently burning, whether set under the authority of a fire permit or not, are required to be extinguished. Use of backyard fire pits for Warming or Cooking, Propane BBQs, Portable Propane Fire Places and Propane Heaters are still permitted under this restriction.

This restriction does not apply to the use of All Terrain Vehicles (ATV) or Off-Highway Vehicles (OHV).
