After a few days of rain and increased moisture, the Town of Cochrane has downgraded the fire restriction to a fire advisory.

The fire advisory means that open fires are allowed but residents are encouraged to be extra careful. The area around fire pits should be soaked prior to use and always ensure the fire area is cool to the touch before you leave. 

Burning is prohibited and all burning licenses are stopped during a fire advisory, with the following exceptions:

  • Indoor household fireplaces
  • Incinerators (for farm and acreage use)
  • Burning barrels
  • Camp stoves (properly attended)
  • Barbecues (charcoal briquettes, propane, or natural gas)
  • Wood pellet grills
  • Propane/natural gas fire pit
  • Recreational campfires in an approved burn pit
  • Chimeneas
  • Fires contained within approved facilities and appliances in designated camping and recreational areas
  • Oil well flaring
