The burn bans put into effect earlier this month have now been lifted - but what does that mean? Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue chief Mark Pankhurst told Global News, "Fires can be no larger than 60 centimeters by 60 centimeters and must be supervised at all times. We are encouraging burning activities to be limited to evening campfires at this time." As always, continue to be safe, careful, and triple check that all fires are fully extinguished.

The municipalities lifted the bans on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning. The bans went into effect the first week of July. “Although the burn ban has been lifted, we encourage our residents and visitors to continue to be cautious with burning activities,” said Kawartha Lakes Fire Rescue chief Mark Pankhurst. “Fires can be no larger than 60 centimeters by 60 centimeters and must be supervised at all times.
