It looks like the Drumheller Valley and surrounding areas will have to be more cautious with campfires or outdoor fireplaces for a while.
Due to the dry conditions we're experiencing, the Town of Drumheller has issued a fire advisory. This advisory represents a moderate fire risk with respect to open air fires.
Open air fires include fires for burning weeds, grass and leaves, fires related to recreational use and the burning of coal, straw and other materials.
This fire advisory allows the use of barbecues, recreational or residential camp fires. Permitted as well are fire pits, outdoor fireplaces and stationary barbecues that burn combustible materials. Natural gas and propane barbecues are not affected.
The fire ban was put in effect on Tuesday, July 18 and will remain in effect until further notice.
