Thanks to the recent hot, dry weather, fire bans remain in place in McNab-Braeside Township and across Mississippi Mills.
All of McNab-Braeside is under a watch, with dry conditions and wind combining for a dangerous situation when it comes to open air and recreational burning. The fire ban includes all campfires at established campgrounds, as well as private properties. And this also means no fireworks or pyrotechnics.
No fire permits will be issued during the ban, and if you currently have a permit, it is on hold.
For more information, contact Township Fire Chief Dave Hartwick at 613-316-2097.
In Mississippi Mills, no burning is permitted until further notice.
Officials want residents to know that you are responsible and liable for all open air fires, and could be nailed with fines and penalties.
