Fire Chief issues partial burn lifted

UPDATE OCT 25 – Fire Chief Scott Manlow has lifted the partial burn ban that was issued on Oct. 24. Open air burning is now permitted.

OCT 24 – Due to high winds and dry conditions, Prince Edward County Fire and Rescue has issued a partial burn ban for the municipality as of Thursday, Oct. 24.

Under a partial ban, burning is restricted to a container with a screened top or a small campfire.

Prince Edward County Fire and Rescue reminds residents that a burning permit is required for all open air burning.

Residents can apply for an annual burning permit by visiting Fire Station 1 at 8 McDonald Drive in Picton, Shire Hall at 332 Picton Main Street, or at any County Library.
Burning permits cost $15 and expire at the end of the calendar year (Dec. 31, 2019).
The fire chief evaluates weather and ground conditions to determine the necessity of a burn ban. When conditions improve, the ban will be updated.

The burn status is available at any time by calling 613.476.7232, 613.962.3497 or by visiting the County website homepage.
