Campfire ban to be issued Thursday

At noon on Thursday, all campfires will be banned in the East and West Kootenays.

Southeast Fire Centre officials said it will help prevent human-caused wildfires as hot and dry conditions are expected to continue.

This is being added to the pre-existing bans in place. This includes the use of fireworks, sky lanterns and binary exploding targets.

If you’re caught breaking the rules you could be issued a ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail.
