Level 3 Fire Restriction for the County of St. Paul

St. Paul County, May 7, 2024 – The County of St. Paul has lifted the Level 4 Fire Ban issued on April 22 and is now at a Level 3 Fire Restriction. The restriction reads as follows:

  • No open-air fires.
  • Fire permits may be suspended or cancelled, and no new fire permits will be issued.
  • Safe wood campfires are allowed on private land and in campgrounds.


The fire restriction applies to all areas within the County of St. Paul, including campgrounds.

If you reside in the Town of St. Paul, the Town of Elk Point, or the Summer Village of Horseshoe Bay, please refer to their websites, as their municipalities have the authority to lift their own fire bans and issue fire restrictions should the need arise.


The County will not be issuing new fire permits and has disabled the permit application form at this time. Residents with an active fire permit will be contacted and notified whether their permit has been suspended or cancelled.


Wood campfires safely held on private land and in campgrounds.

If you have any questions, you may direct enquiries to the County of St. Paul at 780-645-3301 or St. Paul Fire Services at 780-645-4100.
