County reminding you to get a permit if you plan on burning an open fire
The County of Leduc is reminding people about the regulations when it comes to open-burning.
Anyone who is wanting to burn an open fire within the county needs to get a fire permit from a local fire guardian.
The permits are required each time someone wants to do an open burn.
You don't need a permit if you're using fire for cooking, or staying warm around approved fire pits or when a fire is contained in approved burn barrels.
There are penalties for anyone who is caught burning an open-fire without a permit and also for burning while a fire ban is in place.
Today is the first day of the open-fire season which runs until October 31.
Permits are free and can be obtained by calling a fire guardian.

All fire restrictions or bans will be posted to https://albertafirebans.ca/. (JSL/THE ONE NEWS)
