News tidbits – The Huron Shores Fire Department advises that a fire ban is immediately in effect, as of July 22, 2019. Open-air burning (burning of brush, grass, debris) is not permitted.

Johnson Township Fire Chief Ron Smith has issued a fire ban for the region effective Monday, July 22, 2019.

All previously issued burning permits are now suspended until further notice.

A fire ban is the prohibition of all outdoor fires including fireworks and pyrotechnics. Conditions are sufficiently dry and impose a higher than usual risk of forest fires. Anyone who contravenes a fire ban is liable to a fine, and whatever costs that are associated with extinguishing this unlawful fire.
