Burn ban back


South Dundas has re-instated the burn ban.

“It’s just not safe to burn,” said Chris McDonough, fire chief with South Dundas Fire and Emergency Services. “It’s still very dry.”

This ban comes on the heels of recent burning activities that have called on South Dundas’ fire services to extinguish fires lit by area farmers.

The burn ban means that no open air burning is permitted in the municipality and that no more burning permits will be issued until the ban is once again lifted.
