Burks Falls Fire Department was successful in provincial court this week with fines for first offences totalling $30,000 plus costs for charges against 2293398 Ontario Inc. and 2539943 Ontario Inc. related to failing to comply with inspection orders issued against a care and treatment facility operating in Armour Township.

Additionally the presiding Justice of the Peace placed a provincial probation order on both corporations with conditions that require the outstanding work in the inspection orders be completed within six months.
