Fire bans in southern NWT due to current weather conditions

More fire bans hit the NWT over the weekend.

Due to current weather conditions, the Town of Fort Smith has implemented a fire ban on open-air fires within the municipality. In addition to fire bans in Fort Smith, a fire ban is now in place for Queen Elizabeth Territorial Park just outside of the community.

Camp stoves, enclosed barbecues and propane-fueled cooking and heating devices are still permitted for use in NWT Parks. 

Permitted devices must be placed within regulation fire pits and must not emit a flame larger than 0.5 metres in diameter and 0.5 metres in height.

The ban for Queen Elizabeth Territorial Park marks the third ban, following bans in Fred Henne and Yellowknife River territorial parks.
