The Town of Drumheller has issued a fire ban restriction due to the dry conditions.

It took effect Friday, July 28 at 4:00p.m.

The fire restriction ban calls for no open air fires and identifies them as a severe risk. This includes the burning of weeds, grass, leaves, coal, straw and other materials.

This prohibits the use of fireworks, solid fuel barbeques and recreational fire pits. Natural gas and propane barbeques are not included in this fire ban restriction.

Household fire places, campstoves, catalytic or infared-style heaters, portable propane firepits and fires within approved facilities are being allowed.

This restriction pertains to all properties within the municipal boundaries of Drumheller and will not be lifted until further notice.
