Brighton has issued a complete burn ban for the municipality.
Fire Chief Rick Caddick says current conditions continue to be dry, making it more dangerous for rapid fire to spread. Effective immediately, a total burn ban is in-place until further notice.
Caddick adds that outdoor burning is prohibited and fines will be imposed, if needed.
Cobourg and Port Hope Fire Department’s say there isn’t a ban issued here as of yet but it’s being closely monitored, but it’s best to air on the side of caution.
