Burning restrictions are now in place throughout the province, until Oct. 15. The restrictions were delayed this year because of heavy snow. Starting today, April 22, burning domestic brush and campfires is not permitted any day between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Domestic brush refers to brush on properties of homeowners, woodlot owners, farmers and other non-industrial lands. After 2 p.m., the burning of domestic brush and campfires may or may not be permitted, depending on conditions. Natural Resources Minister Zach Churchill encouraged Nova Scotians to respect the restrictions in the interest of public safety. Almost all wild fires are started by people. Restricting small, planned fires is an important safety measure. “I encourage people to please check www.novascotia.ca/burnsafe to learn when burning brush and campfires is permitted in their county,” said Mr. Churchill An online map shows when and where burning is permitted, each day, by county. The map can be viewed at www.novascotia.ca/burnsafe . The map will show green, red, or yellow in each county, to show if it is safe to burn, unsafe to burn, or safe, with certain time restrictions. The burning restriction information is also available in a recorded message by calling toll-free, 1-855-564-2876 (B-U-R-N). The map and phone message are both updated daily at 2 p.m. The map applies only to the burning of brush on domestic properties. Industrial brush burning still requires a paper permit from a Department of Natural Resources office. Campfires in proper metal appliances at provincial and private parks are permitted.
