Muskoka Fire Danger Rating Now HIGH
The Fire Chiefs of Muskoka announced yesterday that the Fire Danger Rating for MUSKOKA is now set at HIGH.
Extreme caution must be taken with all open flames. 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.
Yesterday, municipalities in the Almaguin Highlands instituted a complete fire ban – no fires of any kind and no fireworks.
Consult with your local municipality for outdoor burning regulations.
