Another location in the region has decided to impose a ban on fires.

This week, the Rural Municipality and Village of Loon Lake decided to enforce a ban on open fires, bonfires, grass and brush burning, fireworks, and anything else which could potentially ignite a wildfire.

Erin Simpson, the administrator for both the R.M. and village, said the decision was made in consultation with the local fire chief.

“Any form of fires are banned, with the exception of barbecues,” she said. “It goes up to the boundary of the provincial park.” 

The temporary ban will not be lifted until there is sufficient rainfall to remedy the tinder-dry conditions in the area, Simpson added.

Loon Lake is one of many municipalities that have recently prohibited fires.
