Public Advisory: Open Fire Ban for the Town of Rocky Harbour

The Town of Rocky Harbour is implementing an outdoor  fire ban effective immediately.

Recent dry weather and hot temperatures experienced throughout the island have heightened the forest fire threat throughout all areas. The forest fire index is currently at extreme levels in many regions of the province.                                                                      Outdoor fires are not permitted. Unauthorized burning, including campfires and brush burning, cannot take place  in and around forested areas. Gas barbeques and CSA approved patio wood burning devices are excluded, except in municipalities that have issued a ban. All fireworks are included in the ban, except for sanctioned firework displays conducted by town and local communities with appropriate fire suppression resources on hand.

The outdoor fire ban will be lifted when weather and forest conditions warrant.
