We have received some questions on the Public Advisory: New Restrictions for Open Fires that was released yesterday by the Department of Fisheries and Land Resources.
As indicated in the advisory:
“Gas barbeques and CSA approved patio wood burning devices are excluded from the ban, except in municipalities that have issued a ban for these devices.”
The Town of Carbonear has not issued a ban for gas barbeques and CSA approved patio wood burning devices. Nor is an application or permit required for these.
The restriction is for grass burning, brush burning, campfires and personal fireworks. This includes open burning and burning from barrels and other non-CSA approved containers.
If you have any questions or require further clarification, please call 596-3831 or email [email protected]
