May 7, 2013 Original Notice: Due to the unusually high fire risk caused by current dry air conditions, the Municipality of Huron Shores has imposed a FIRE BAN effective immediately until further notice. Small, contained fires are permitted for cooking and/or warmth.
All Open Air Burning Permits (for burning grass, wood debris, etc.) are suspended and no permits will be renewed while the ban remains in place. The Fire Department reminds everyone to exercise caution when burning. Camp fires should never be left unattended and always ensure that sufficient tools, water, etc. are at hand to control and then thoroughly extinguish the fire afterward.
