The 2021 Muskoka fire danger rating season has ended; there will be no further monitoring of the fire danger rating for 2021.

Residents are advised to continue exercising safety precautions around open flames, and check with their local municipalities regarding open-air burning regulations and restrictions.

The Muskoka Fire Chiefs wish to thank everyone for their continued support. The fire danger rating will be updated early next spring prior to the start of the 2022 fire danger season.
