Grimsby lifts open air fire ban after two days


Published July 22, 2021 at 8:37 pm


At roughly 6:45 pm on July 19, Grimsby issued an open air fire ban.

The reason at that time was that Environment Canada has issued an Air Quality statement in effect for their area.

Apparently, smoke from active forest fires in northwestern Ontario was causing huge air quality concerns throughout the Province, even this far south.

By yesterday (July 21) at noon, Grimbsy lifted the ban, noting open air fires “may resume in accordance with By-Law 21-17, Open Air Fires.”
