Open Air Burn Ban Lifted

The Fire Department will be lifting the burn ban for the Town of Carleton Place starting Thursday May 7th, 2020.  Open air burning is regulated under the Town of Carleton Place Open Air Burning By-law. The ban was put in place to prevent the rapid spread of fire due to the dry grass and brush exposed after the snow melt and to reduce the Fire Department’s potential exposure to Covid-19.  The recent rainfall and warmer days have made conditions safer for outdoor fires in permitted areas.
