Open fires prohibited as of July 2
Effective at 1 p.m MST on July 2, 2014, open fires will be prohibited within the Southeast Fire Centre’s jurisdiction to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.
This prohibition will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.
Specifically, prohibited activities include:
• the burning of any waste, slash or other materials;
• stubble or grass fires of any size over any area;
• the use of fireworks, sky lanterns or burning barrels of any size or description.
This prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller, and it does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes.
This prohibition covers all B.C. Parks, Crown lands and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of a local government that has forest fire prevention bylaws and is serviced by a fire department.
Please check with local authorities for any other restrictions before lighting a fire.
