City of Corner Brook Recommends Caution With Fire Pits

City of Corner Brook

The City of Corner Brook Fire Services is asking all residents to exercise caution when using their approved fire pits.

When enjoying a leisure activity, such as a back yard barbecue or approved fire pit, please be responsible, diligent and safe.  This includes charcoal barbecues, recreational fires in campgrounds and in parks.

Residents should:

  • Keep a garden hose nearby, connected and ready for use in case of a fire.
  • Safely douse the fire when you’re done. The safest way to extinguish an outdoor fire is with water.
  • Watch the wind direction to ensure sparks aren’t getting on flammable materials.
  • Never leave outdoor fires unattended.

To report a fire, or unauthorized burning, call 9-1-1

Corner Brook Fire Services will continue to monitor the situation. If environmental conditions deteriorate, the advisory may be upgraded to a fire restriction, or ban.

For further updates or changes to the warning, please visit the City of Corner Brook website at  and search Fire Bans.
