A Fire Advisory is now in effect for Cochrane.

Under this advisory, open fires will be permitted, but residents are urged to exercise extreme caution and soak the surrounding area with water before using fire pits.

The advisory has been issued due to the dry and windy weather conditions, which increase the risk of fires. 

Fire crews will be closely monitoring the situation and will be on standby in case of any emergency. The advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
