Fire Ban Lifted
The Muskoka Fire Chiefs have lifted the FIRE BAN for Muskoka after an announcement that Ontario is lifting the Restricted Fire Zone (RFZ) designation that was put in place last month across Ontario's fire region.
The Fire Danger Rating has now been set to MODERATE for Muskoka.
Small fires are permitted in most rural areas of Muskoka keeping in mind that NO DAYTIME BURNING is allowed. You must have adequate tools and water to extinguish the fire if the need arises and you must be with your fire at all times.
In the Almaguin Highlands, the Municpalities of Perry, Sprucedale, Burks Falls, Magnetawan will be changing their ratings to HIGH on Saturday.
Small campfires for cooking and warmth, no daytime burning and no brush burning.
Consult with your local By-law Dept. for outdoor burning regulations in your municipality.
