Campfires are once again permitted throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction.
The current campfire prohibition was rescinded Friday due to cooler and wetter conditions, which resulted in a decreased wildfire risk in the region.
Small backyard burning piles remain prohibited.
The Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction covers all B.C. parks, Crown lands and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by fire departments.
To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation, please call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.
