All of Perth County is under a fire ban ... but some people didn't get the memo.
Perth County OPP responded to three different fires on Saturday.
All Perth County residents are reminded to obey the "Perth County Outdoor Fire Ban" which has been in effect from July 6th.
Conditions remain extremely dry and all open air fires are prohibited.
This includes bonfires, campfires, burn barrels, outdoor fireplaces/chimneys or any other fires set in open air.
If fires are observed call 911 immediately.
If you have questions about this ban, contact your local fire Department.
Shortly after 11:00pm on Saturday, police and the St. Marys fire department were dispatched to a Sports Utility Vehicle along Perth Line 9, east of St. Marys.
The 2010 Jeep was being driven through a field when it got stuck in a shallow ditch.
The driver attempted to rock the vehicle out of the ditch but was unsuccessful.
The Jeep's occupants noticed a grass fire beneath the Jeep.
Due to the dry conditions, the fire quickly spread and engulfed the vehicle.
The fire department was able to contain the grass fire but was unable to save the Jeep.
At around 3:00pm, a Perth County OPP officer on patrol noticed thick black smoke from an outdoor fire along Line 81, south east of Listowel.
The officer rushed to the scene and observed four-meter-high flames from a fire on a private property.
The North Perth Fire Department was contacted and a crew from the Atwood station safely extinguished the fire.
At 7:30pm, a Perth County OPP officer observed a small campfire in the backyard of a residence along Elizabeth Street East in Listowel.
The officer spoke to the resident and explained the fire ban.
The fire was immediately extinguished.
