Fire restriction in the county


The County of Newell has upgraded its fire advisory to a fire restriction due to the extremely dry conditions and wind speeds.
County fire guardians will refuse to issue fire permits until such time as it is safe to reissue. Any fires that are now burning are to be extinguished.
No fires are allowed except in approved gas or propane cooking appliances or portable propane fire pits or campfires in designated fire sites within approved campgrounds.
The restriction includes family style, low hazard fireworks and explosive targets.
