Fire Ban Lifted – June 28, 2021Update – Due to the amount of rain received in our jurisdiction, the Huron Shores Fire Department has lifted the fire ban imposed on June 1st, 2021. *Please see the original notice below.Posted May 31, 2021: Fire Ban Effective June 1, 2021Original Post – Huron Shores Fire Chief Jim Kent has imposed a Fire Ban for The Municipality of Huron Shores, effective at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. Note that fireworks are NOT permitted when under a Fire Ban.The Fire Ban does permit small, contained fires for cooking and/or warmth. “Campfires”, are defined as being a small, contained fire, no greater than 1 metre in diameter with the flames to be no higher than 1 metre (this does not include large bonfires or brush fires).The current conditions are very dry and the Fire Department urges everyone to use extreme caution should you decide to have a campfire. When burning, always ensure that you have ready access to an adequate water supply, tools, etc. to control and thoroughly extinguish the fire. Never leave a campfire unattended. Should the Fire Dept. be required to respond to a fire caused from a campfire, charges could be imposed. See General Conditions for Compliance for Cooking or Warmth for more information.Open Air Burning Permits are not required for “campfires”, also defined under By-law #14-08, as being a small, contained fire, no greater than 1 metre in diameter with the flames to be no higher than 1 metre (this does not include large bonfires or brush fires). Under Huron Shores’ current Open Air Burning By-law, campfires ARE permitted when a Fire Ban is imposed. By-laws governing open air burning vary from municipality to municipality. If you are unsure of the by-law in your community, contact your municipal office prior to burning.In order to limit traffic into the Municipal Office, we encourage individuals to obtain a permit online located under forms/permits.For more information with respect to Fire Bans and infractions of the by-law, please contact the Municipal Office at 705-843-2033, or visit the Fire Department page.
