Oakville has lifted its town-wide fire ban.

The decision by the Oakville Fire Department to lift the town-wide fair ban for all open-air burning is effective immediately.

The move to end the ban comes after a morning of heavy rainfall and improved air quality.

A fire ban was announced last Thursday (June 8) due to dry weather conditions and smoke from wildfires in Ontario and Quebec.

“Oakville Fire advises the community to continue practising fire safety, including when using open fire and fire pits, propane barbecues, cooking indoors and outdoors, candle use and to ensure that smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms are in working condition,” the Town of Oakville said.
