March 3, 2010 – Thunder Bay Fire Rescue is advising residents that Open and Special Burning Permits are not available at the Temporary Neebing Fire Station located in the Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Fire Service Centre at 1580 Arthur St West.

Residents who live in the Neebing service area who wish to apply for Open or Special Burning Permits are asked to go to either the Brown Street Fire Station located at 1321 Brown St or the James Street Fire Station at 501 Churchill Dr to obtain permits.
