Fire Burning Permit

Ontario Fire Code Sentence 2.6.3.4 states: "Open air burning shall not be permitted unless approved, or unless such burning consists of a small confined fire,

supervised at all times, and used to cook food on a grill or barbeque."

 

When a burn ban is in effect, all permits are suspended until the ban has been lifted.

 

  • Burning shall be conducted between the hours of 6 pm and 6 am.
  • The permit holder shall ensure that an adult person is present at and attends the fire at all times until it has been completely extinguished.
  • The permit holder shall ensure that there is adequate equipment present (water hose, water bucket, shovel, and rake) to prevent the fire from spreading beyond control.
  • Burning shall not be conducted in windy conditions. Fires must be located away from the tree line.
  • The permit holder shall ensure that the fire does not cause discomfort to other persons or impair visibility on the public roadway.

 

This burn permit is valid for a period of 1 week unless otherwise indicated by the Fire Department.
