According to the MFC, “During a burn ban, anything with an open flame that produces an ember is not allowed.”

No outdoor burning is allowed. This includes but is not limited to: campfires, bonfires, fire pits, fire rings, burn barrels, debris burning, and field burning. MFC is asking the public to remain attentive and comply with burn bans to prevent wildfires.
