Outdoor Burning Hours to be Extended

Outdoor Burning Hours to be Extended

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO December 17, 2020  (LSN)    Starting on Dec. 17, Thunder Bay Fire Rescue will extend the outdoor burning hours from 12 pm to 12am daily until May 1, 2021. The current outdoor burning hours are 5 pm to 12 am daily.

“The outdoor burning hours were extended to allow families to enjoy time outside during the day while it is still light out,” said Fire Chief Greg Hankkio. “Outdoor burning permits are still required, and all permit rules and regulations still apply.”

He added that during the current pandemic, recommendations from the Thunder Bay District Health Unit on outdoor gatherings should still be followed.

Fire Stations are closed to the public due to the Covid-19 emergency so permits can only be renewed and applied for online. Permit rules and regulations are strictly enforced and failure to obtain a permit or follow the permit rules will result in prosecution and fine.

To apply for or renew an outdoor burning permit, and for more information on permit rules and regulations, visit: www.thunderbay.ca/fir

APOSTLE, ISLANDS, WISCONSIN  ~~~~~~~ June 28, 2021  (LSN)   The brains behind the SeaCavesWatch.org website have developed a new website that offers real-time wave condition information for the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore in Lake Superior. Before venturing onto the lake, paddlers and boaters should check WISC-Watch (https://go.wisc.edu/7y2x4o), which stands for Water Information for a Safe Coast Watch. The WISC-Watch site provides information from seven spotter buoys recently deployed throughout the islands, plus Chequamegon Bay near Ashland and Siskiwit Bay near Cornucopia.
