A recent spate of heat and dry conditions has prompted fire chiefs from across Muskoka to impose a total fire ban.

The Fire Danger Rating has been set to Extreme across Muskoka. This means there are no fires permitted, at all. The tinder-like conditions mean no fires are allowed even after the sun goes down; that applies to fires for warmth or for cooking, and no fireworks allowed either.

A fine for violating the fire ban could run as high as $350.
