A Fire Advisory is now in effect for Camrose County (effective June 29, 2021)
Due to the extreme heat and drying weather conditions, it is essential to use caution with any open burning within Camrose County.
Existing fire permits and fireworks permits remain valid (subject to suspension or cancellation). New fire & fireworks permits will continue to be issued.
What is allowed:
- Safe wood campfires in campgrounds (within fire rings), backyards, or random camping areas
- Charcoal briquettes
- Portable propane fire pits
- Gas or propane stoves and barbecues
- Catalytic or infrared-style heaters
Off-Highway Vehicles can start wildfires – check frequently to ensure hotspots are free of debris, and make sure mufflers and spark arrestors are working properly.
Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished.
The Fire Advisory will remain in effect until conditions improve.
