ADDENDUM: As of 2pm September 10, 2015, Sooke is still at HIGH.
Remember, though, that under the bylaw, there is no other open burning allowed under any circumstances during the months of July, Aug and Sept. Fire hazard permitting, October 1 is the earliest that general yard burning would be allowed and a permit is required then.
Don’t be surprised if we return to extreme conditions when the weather dries out and warms up. September can be a beautiful month but has had extreme hazard conditions more often than not.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our collective safety by being fire smart.
