Citing dry conditions due to minimal snow coverage and low moisture levels, Leduc County issued a fire advisory November 1.
There are no restrictions on fires at this time, and people are allowed to continue to burn open fires, cooking and heating appliances fueled by propane or natural gas, the county said in the advisory posted to its website.
“Even though open burns do not need a permit during this time frame, Alberta still experiences dry windy conditions that can lead to an open burn spreading. As a precaution during the fall and winter months, different measures should be followed to prevent fires from becoming a nuisance or burning out of control,” the advisory said.
The county asks that if you are going to have an open burn, notify Leduc County Fire Services ahead of time out of caution.
