All municipalities within the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville have implemented a PARTIAL OPEN-AIR BURN BAN as of Thursday April 8th, 2021 until further notice.
Permitted Open Air Burning includes: Campfires, outdoor fireplaces, chimeneas, and appliances with a mechanical shutoff, i.e. propane or natural gas equipment.
Prohibited Open Air Burning includes: agricultural burns, brush piles, burn barrels, incinerators and other types of outdoor burning not permitted.
There have been multiple uncontrolled grass and brush fires within the County over the last couple weeks which has lead the Fire Chief’s in Leeds and Grenville to enact this partial burn ban.
We are monitoring the situation frequently and we will communicate any changes as they arise.
