THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO ~~  May 22, 2020  (LSN)  Due to the high to extreme forest fire hazard, effective 12:01 am Saturday May 23, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry will implement a Restricted Fire Zone in the Thunder Bay and Dryden Districts, as well as the eastern Fort Frances district and southern portions of Sioux Lookout and Nipigon Districts. 

The Restricted Fire Zone will be in effect until further notice. Outdoor fires are banned. Portable gas stoves may still be used BUT must be handled with extreme care.  You can learn more about Restricted Fire Zones here.

For a more detailed boundary of the Restricted Fire Zone, consult the interactive fire map at Ontario.ca/forestfire.

THUNDER BAY
Effective at midnight tonight Thunder Bay Fire Rescue has issued a fire ban on all outdoor burning within the City of Thunder Bay.  The ban on outdoor burning is consistent with the recent Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests Restricted Fire Zone declaration.

Residents are reminded that all outdoor burning permits are suspended when a fire ban is in effect.  Any outdoor burning during a fire ban will result in prosecution and substantial fine. We appreciate the community’s cooperation and Thunder Bay Fire Rescue will advise when the fire ban and suspension of permits is lifted.
