Open Air Burning

Open Air Fire Permits are required for all Township of Huron-Kinloss properties wishing to conduct open air burning and for Township of Huron-Kinloss property owners, residents and/or tenants wishing to have a beach fire.

How to apply for an open air fire or beach fire permit

A permit is not required for barbecues and permanent outdoor fireplaces used solely for the cooking of food on a grill. Recreational fires (campfires) and fires set in containers such as chimineas, metal tubs or fire pits do not require a permit.
