Lethbridge County has issued a Fire Restriction effective 12:00 p.m. Thursday, April 7 due to warm, dry conditions.
Under the Restriction no fire permits or fireworks permits will be issued until further notice. All active permits are cancelled. Fines apply for burning during a Fire Restriction.
Recreational campfires (campground and backyard fire pits) and acceptable incinerators that meet the specifications of the County’s Fire Permit Bylaw #1424 are permitted. Please visit https://lethcounty.ca/p/fire-permits or call the County office at 403-328-5525 to determine if yours meets the criteria. Fires that are contained in cooking or heating appliances fueled by fluids or gasses (gas or propane fueled fire rings, BBQs, stoves, and heaters) are also allowed.
