A fire advisory has been issued for Lacombe County due to windy and dry conditions.
Existing fire permits remain valid, subject to suspension or cancellation. New fire permits will be issued on a case-by-case basis.
The fire advisory will remain in effect until conditions improve. If the fire hazard continues to increase, further restrictions may be implemented, says the county.
Safe wood campfires in campgrounds (within fire rings), backyards or random camping areas are permitted. So are burning barrels, charcoal briquettes, portable propane firepits, gas or propane stoves and barbecues, as well as catalytic or infrared-style heaters.
