Fire Advisory Smoky Lake County
Smoky Lake County has downgraded the existing Fire Restriction to a Fire Advisory effective 1:00 p.m. June 10, 2019. New fire permits will be issued on inspection only during the Fire Advisory.
What is allowed:
Safe wood campfires in campgrounds (within fire rings), backyards, or random camping areas
Portable propane fire pits
Gas or propane stoves and barbecues
Catalytic or infrared-style heaters
Off-Highway Vehicles can start wildfires – check frequently to ensure hotspots are free of debris, and make sure mufflers and spark arrestors are working properly.
Never leave a campfire unattended. Soak it, stir it and soak it again until cool to the touch to ensure it is extinguished.
The Fire Advisory allows burning barrels with safe burning practices in place and screens covering all barrels in use as per county policy.
The Fire Advisory will remain in effect until conditions improve.
