"Right now, given the extreme heat and dry conditions, it is not permissible to have an open burn of any type," Chief Vanzile explains. "That includes store-bought chimineas and other wood burning fire pits."
Gas or BBQ grills may still be used.
Additionally, Chief Vanzile strongly recommends that residents refrain from using fireworks this season. "Weather conditions are such that the likelihood of grass fires has increased greatly," he says. "We suggest not using them this season for the safety of individuals and protection of property."
