The Fire Danger Rating is now set at EXTREME. There is a TOTAL BAN on all fires until further notice.

Under a total fire ban with an extreme rating;

  • NO fires of any type are permitted at any time including cooking and warmth.
  • NO fireworks are allowed

Currently, the whole country is experiencing various levels of dry conditions, and major wildfires are burning. Conditions are becoming drier each day that passes in Ontario with the sunny, warm weather. The Muskoka Fire Chiefs have moved the forest fire danger rating to EXTREME and a TOTAL FIRE BAN is now in effect, for the District of Muskoka.

Some fire departments in Muskoka have responded to out-of-control grass/brush fires this week. The weather forecast is not expected to produce any significant precipitation and it’s anticipated that conditions will continue to become dryer in our area.

No open-air fires or fireworks are permitted. In addition, extra caution should be taken when using any equipment/tools that may produce heat.

  • Consider using methods other than grinding tools and hot works outdoors
  • Do not drive any type of vehicle through long grass/brush as hot exhausts and engines can ignite dry ground cover
  • Dispose of cigarette butts and joints in metal containers and/or water
  • Additional care should be taken when using propane appliances such as barbeques. A responsible person should always monitor these appliances while they’re in use.

For more information, please read the full notice.
