The hot and dry conditions are forcing municipalities to look at whether or not to allow any burning.

The extended period of dry conditions combined with daytime highs approaching the low to mid 30’s has prompted the Municipality of Glenboro-South Cypress to implement a ban on all outdoor burning.

The ban includes any fires contained within fire pits and burning barrels.

 

A ban has also been issued for Killarney-Turtle Mountain. There no open fires are allowed.
