We would like to remind residents who wish to burn brush, leaves or fallen trees to please do so with caution. Permits are required and can be obtained from Fire Station 1 in Kelligrews or Fire Station 2 in Topsail. Residents who wish to burn are reminded to be cautious and courteous to surrounding properties. Homes with air exchangers and heat pumps are continuously circulating air from the outside and any sort of outside fire can quickly cause a neighboring home to fill with smoke. Wind direction can also cause smoke to enter neighboring homes through open doors and windows.

Provincial Burn Permits are required from May 1 to September 30 each year. This permit is issued by the Department of Fisheries and Land Resources located at Paddy’s Pond.
