Total fire ban declared in Algonquin Provincial Park effective Thursday

Effective Thursday, June 1st at 12:01 am there is a total fire ban in Algonquin Provincial Park. 

That means open fires are not allowed including campfires, along with charcoal and wood-burning barbecues. The total fire ban is because of the extreme forest fire hazard caused by this week’s hot and dry weather.

Here is a list of what is not allowed during a total fire ban:

  • campfires
  • charcoal or wood barbecues
  • biomass stoves
  • candles
  • torches
  • propane fire pits or bowls

The following is a list of what is allowed:

  • portable gas or propane cooking stoves with shut-off valve
  • portable liquid-fuel cooking stoves with shut-off valve
  • propane barbecues with a shut-off valve

The total fire ban will remain in effect until further notice.
