Deux-Montagnes, May 29, 2023 – A ban on Open fires in or near forests came into effect yesterday in Deux-Montagnes. Under our municipal by-law 1668, this decision by the Quebec Government, taken in collaboration with the Société de protection des forêts contre le feu (SOPFEU), prohibits the use of outdoor fireplaces in Deux-Montagnes, even if they are equipped with a spark arrester.
This ban must be respected until SOPFEU lifts the ban now in force in the Deux-Montagnes RCM. Only propane or natural gas fireplaces are permitted during this ban.
We all need to work together to ensure the ban on open fires near forests. This measure aims to limit the risk of forest fires. Only propane or natural gas fireplaces are permitted during this ban.
