Recreational Burning

Recreational burning, such as a backyard campfire, is currently allowed within the City of Sarnia provided that the regulations outlined in the Open Air Burning By-Law (link below) are adhered to.

There is a checklist available for download (in Adobe pdf format) on this page that outlines the steps you must take in order for your recreational fire to comply with the items outlined in the Open Air Burning By-Law.

Many calls that we respond to regarding complaints from recreational open burns often occur because something on that checklist was missed.

It should be noted that the Fees for Services By-Law (link below) outlines the cost-recovery amounts that Sarnia Fire Rescue Services may pursue upon non-compliance. The Fire Officer will have the discretion to determine compliance and this decision will be final.
