Local Fire Chief Steve Molloy has temporarily halted fire pit permits.
The City of Thompson says this is due to the extremely dry conditions locally and across the province.
This means fires in private fire pits are not allowed within city permits at any time or day or night until permits are officially restores.
This is in conjunction with fire restrictions that are currently in place across the province.
That includes campfires being prohibited at most provincial parks and backcountry travel or travel to remote cottages requiring a travel permit.
