Open Air Burning

|

Parry Sound Fire Hall

All burning in the Town of Parry Sound requires a fire permit.

A burning control by-law exists within the Town of Parry Sound in order to protect the citizens and their property from potential fire hazards. For accurate inquiries the by-law itself should be referred to.

Please remember that guidelines for open air burning must be adhered too and your fire must be extinguished when conditions cause an odour of smoke to create any inconvenience, irritation or discomfort to others.

Permits are located at the Parry Sound Fire Department.
