Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority has issued fire restrictions effective last Friday.

Under this restriction, existing fire permits are suspended, and no new fire permits will be issued. Safe wood campfires within fire rings in campgrounds are allowed alongside essential burning with written permission from a forest officer or Fire Guardian. 

All outdoor wood fires are banned on public lands, including backcountry and random camping areas. Fireworks and exploding targets are also prohibited.

Safe wood campfires including charcoal briquettes on private lands and in provincial campgrounds are allowed alongside backyard fire pits, charcoal briquette barbeques, propane/ natural gas-powered appliances, and indoor wood fires contained within a device with a chimney and spark arrestor. 

Cooking, warming and lighting devices that are CSA approved are allowed as long as they are used as per manufacturer’s standards. 

Bonnyville Regional Fire Authority asks the public to Never leave a campfire unattended. 

“Soak it, stir it, and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished.” 

Anyone who thinks they see a wildfire is asked to report it by calling 310-FIRE.
