Fireworks and Sparklers Added to List of Banned Items During Fire Ban

Municipalities are continuing to warn residents that the area is under a strict Fire Ban. 

The Town of Petawawa has extended their Fire Ban to include fireworks, sparklers, firecrackers, as well as other open flames. The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry has issued a total ban from Renfrew to Mattawa and the Quebec border - right through the other side of Algonquin Park. 

Municipalities are taking a zero tolerance stance on the Ban and heavy fines will be issued if you are caught burning.
