Parched conditions have led officials in Rocky View County to prohibit open fires.

The order takes effect immediately Tuesday amid fire conditions officials in the county north, west and east of Calgary consider severe.

All fire and fireworks permits have been suspended and “this ban … will remain in effect as long as high-risk conditions are present,” stated the county in a press release.

Exempted from the prohibition are indoor fireplaces, properly attended camp stoves, propane or natural gas fire pits or barbecues, wood pellet and charcoal briquette grills and oil well flaring.

The ban comes near the end of a month that’s seen little precipitation and frequently higher temperatures in the Calgary area.
