The Huron Shores Fire Department has lifted the Fire Ban originally imposed on June 20th, 2016.  Open Air Burning (burning of brush, grass, debris) may only be conducted with a valid permit.  Permits are available at the Municipal Office in Iron Bridge from Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; the Fee is $5.00.  For more information respecting Open Air Burning, Fire Bans, and penalties for infraction of the By-law, contact the Municipal Office (705-843-2033) or visit the Fire Department page.

Property owners are not required to purchase a Burning Permit in order to have a “campfire”.   Under the Huron Shores Open Air Burning By-law, small, contained fires, i.e. “campfires”,  ARE permitted for cooking and/or warmth, even under the conditions of a Fire Ban.  Campfires are defined as being no more than 1 metre in diameter and the flames must be no higher than 1 metre — this does not include a large bonfire or brush fire.
