CITY WIDE FIRE BAN IN EFFECT

Posted on Monday July 10, 2017

Effective immediately the City of Yellowknife is implementing a mandatory open air burning ban. The ban includes the use of fire pits within the city.

Due to increasingly dry conditions and after consulting with GNWT Department of Environment and Natural Resources, the City of Yellowknife’s Fire Chief, John Fredericks, has implemented an open air burning ban.

The open air burning ban will remain in effect until further notice. The public will be advised of a change in status through Yellowknife media, City of Yellowknife website and social media sites.
