Of the 350 wildfires responded to since the beginning of April, 127 were caused by humans. The previous fire ban was lifted earlier this month.

However, there is some good news for early Fall campers: the ban does not prohibit campfires smaller than half a metre wide by half a metre high, or cooking stoves that use propane, gas or briquettes. The ban specifically prohibits the burning of any waste or other material, including stubble or grass, and the use of fireworks or any size of burning barrels.

Anyone found in violation of the fire ban can be fined up to $345, or if convicted in court, be fined up to $100,000 and face a year in jail.
