Friday, May 11, 2018
The County of Grande Prairie Regional Fire Service has issued a fire advisory for the entire County, along with the towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith and Wembley and the Village of Hythe.
The fire advisory is in effect due to warm and dry conditions. As a result, residents who have existing permits are advised not to burn as the warm weather increases the fire hazards in the region. No new permits will be issued until further notice. Burning is not permitted when winds reach 12 km per hour or higher.
