Fire advisories are in effect again for the City and County of Grande Prairie as well as the towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith and Wembley and the Village of Hythe.
Due to high winds and warm, dry conditions, people with existing permits are being told not to burn as the conditions could increase the fire hazard in the region.
No new permits will be issued in the City until conditions improve. Burn barrels and incinerators, backyard fire pits, and fires at campsites are still allowed with a permit. Gas and propane barbeques are also allowed but don’t require a permit.
A fire advisory is also in place for the Grande Prairie Forest Area. Advisory for all three areas were previously put into place before the long weekend but were cancelled on May 15th.
