A ban on fires will be in force in rural areas of New Plymouth, Stratford and South Taranaki districts from midnight tonight.
The restriction means anyone wanting to light a fire in a rural area will first need to apply for a permit.
To apply for a fire permit and for more information, visit www.trfa.co.nz/alright2light.
