Campfires coming back to Southeast Fire Centre

As of 1 p.m. today campfires are allowed again in the region.

BC Wildfire Service officials said the combination of current and future forecasts, recent precipitation, and improved overnight recoveries has made the rescinding a reality.

Category 2 and 3 burns are still restricted.

That includes the use of the use of sky lanterns, fireworks, air curtain burners, burn barrels and burn cages and the use of binary exploding targets.

“Anyone lighting a campfire in an area where campfires are allowed must maintain a fireguard by removing flammable debris from around the campfire area, attend the fire at all times, and must have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water available nearby to properly extinguish the campfire,” said Southeast Fire Centre officials.
