    A Permit to Burn is required to burn brush and other materials during Forest Fire Season.

    The outdoor fire ban on the island portion of the province has been lifted but remains in effect in Labrador. A fire ban does not apply to a fire set using a gas, kerosene, alcohol, propane or charcoal burning unit, provided it is not used within 3.5 metres of any woods, brush or other flammable material. All coals from a charcoal-burning unit must be totally extinguished before being discarded and must not be discarded in any manner that may start a fire. A Permit to Burn is required to burn brush and other materials during Forest Fire Season. Permits are available by contacting a local Forestry and Wildlife District Office.
