Due to the extreme dry weather conditions, it is essential to use caution with any open burning within Camrose County.
At this time, Fire Permits are not required to conduct open burns. However, to ensure everyone’s safety, all fires must always be supervised and completely extinguished when finished. Also, prior to commencing a burn, please notify your respective Fire Department in advance of the burn as a precautionary measure.
What is allowed:
- Safe wood campfires in campgrounds (within fire rings), backyards, or random camping areas
- Charcoal briquettes

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.
