A partial fire ban is in place for Belleville.
Due to very dry conditions and lack of rain, a partial ban has been put in place until further notice.
Small attended camp fires and attended burn barrels are permitted, but please ensure water is nearby to extinguish and dampen the ground.
A reminder that a permit is required for all outdoor burning in Belleville. No other burning like brush piles and/or land clearing fires are not permitted.
The Ministry of Natural Resources in Ontario has reported an approximate 350 per cent increase in fires to date over this time last year.
