Before lighting a fire in Bible Hill, it is important to check:
- Fire ban and other restrictions status at: novascotia.ca/burnsafe

Many outdoor fires in Bible Hill are prohibited, including but not limited to those:
- in non-compliant fire pits;
- burning general, garden, or yard waste; or
- producing smoke found to be a nuisance to another person.
 
The by-law provides Bible Hill Fire Brigade the authority to enter upon any land to extinguish non-compliant fires, and fines between $100 and $5,000 are applicable. For further details, see the by-law.
