The Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources’ map for Mainland Nova Scotia went red today at 2 p.m., signifying no fires allowed.

The red means no domestic brush burning or campfires, due to high risk of wildfires. Cape Breton is all shaded in yellow which means domestic brush burning and campfires are allowed only between 7 p.m. and 8 a.m. for safety reasons.

During wildfire-risk season, March 15 to Oct. 15, Nova Scotia residents must check before they burn brush. And during Wildfire Risk Season brush burning and campfires are not permitted in any county from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

And residents must check municipal bylaws because they may differ and take precedence over provincial rules.
