City Lifting Fire Ban in Greater Sudbury

14-Jun-2021

Effective at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, June 15, the City of Greater Sudbury will lift the fire ban declared June 7, 2021.

The ban was declared because of extreme temperatures, dry conditions and safety concerns related to preventable wildfires and their spread. Although weather conditions have improved, the fire hazard in Greater Sudbury and area remains high.

While campfires, chiminea fireplaces, crop residue fires, and other types of outdoor burning are permitted, please be safe and cautious around any outdoor fires, and never leave a fire unattended.

The City continues to closely monitor the fire hazard status and will inform residents should the fire ban be reinstated.
