To­tal fire ban in city, county

The Peterborough Examiner - - Local -

A to­tal fire ban is now in ef­fect for all of Peter­bor­ough city and county.

As hot­ter than nor­mal tem­per­a­tures have con­tin­ued all through July, there has been a high num­ber of com­plaints from res­i­dents about open air burn­ing, ac­cord­ing to Peter­bor­ough Fire Ser­vices Deputy Chief Chad Brown. Open air burn­ing is not per­mit­ted ever within the city, Brown states.

The ex­cep­tions to the rule are per­mit­ted ap­pli­ances such as bar­be­cues that burn propane or nat­u­ral gas, firepit ta­bles and fire bowls.
