Daytime burning ban in place for all of Gravenhurst
If you’re collecting clippings and brush for the burn pile this spring, Gravenhurst fire officials are reminding you, don’t light that fire during the day.
As of today, a daytime burn ban is in effect for all of Gravenhurst.
Fire Prevention Officer Rob King says lower-than-usual snowfall amounts have left the area more susceptible to quickly spreading fires.
And, as we move closer to summer weather, King is reminding residents to be aware of full-day fire bans before lighting a fire at any time.
He urges residents to consider using landfills for disposing of brush and refuse from spring cleaning.
To find out if a full burn ban is in place you can contact the Muskoka Forest Fire Danger hotline free at 1-877-847-1577.
