  • one to two concurrently burning piles no larger than two metres high by three metres wide
  • burning stubble or grass over an area less than 0.2 hectares
  • the use of fireworks
  • the use of exploding binary targets
  • the use of air curtain burners
  • the use of sky lanterns, and
  • the use of burn barrels or burn cages

Larger category 3 open fires remain prohibited throughout the Southeast Fire Centre until Oct. 31.
