City Lifts Fire Ban in Greater Sudbury

May 24, 2022

Effective immediately, the City of Greater Sudbury has lifted the fire ban declared May 11, 2022.

The ban was declared because of dry conditions related to preventable brush fires and their spread. The fire hazard has improved with cooler temperatures and recent rain showers.

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.
