Fire ban lifted in Greater Sudbury
Aug 24, 2018
Effective immediately, the City of Greater Sudbury has lifted the fire ban declared on July 6.
The ban is declared because of extreme temperatures, dry conditions and safety concerns related to preventable wildfires and their spread.
Thank you to residents and visitors for their cooperation in keeping our city safe from wildfires throughout the time of the ban.
The fire hazard in Greater Sudbury and area remains high.
The City continues to closely monitor the fire hazard status and will inform citizens should the fire ban be reinstated.
Please remain cautious when it comes to campfires and disposing of smoking materials.
