Barrie fire ban in effect

How hot and dry is it? If the scorched look of lawns across the city isn’t enough of a clue, the news that current tinder-like conditions have led to a ban on outdoor fires in Barrie should tell you it’s pretty hot and dry.
Under the ban, all outdoors fires are banned within city limits. As such, Barrie Fire and Emergency Services will not be issuing any permits for outdoor fires until further notice.
Environment Canada weather forecast for Barrie calls for a continuation of the hot and dry conditions, with temperatures expected to be in the 30s over the coming days. There is a 30 percent chance of showers on Sunday, with isolated showers anticipated Monday and Tuesday.
