Due to the recent colder weather and precipitation, Lethbridge County is lifting the Fire Restriction that was issued earlier this month. 

Fire permits are once again being issued and are required for most burning activities.  Permits are free of charge and can be applied for online or on the Lethbridge County app.  They can also be obtained at the county’s administration office.

Fire permit holders may burn the following items:

Paper products
Untreated wood (wood or wood products that do not contain preservatives)
Yard waste (grass/tree clippings, leaves, branches, fallen trees, brush, weeds, etc.)
Straw and stubble
These items cannot be burned, even with a fire permit:
