Campfire ban lifted in Cariboo, Kamloops and Prince George fire centres

Other restrictions remain in place

Campfire bans have been lifted for the Cariboo, Prince George and Kamloops fire centres.

“Rain and cooler temperatures have reduced the wildfire risk in most parts of the province, so the BC Wildfire Service has rescinded campfire bans in specific regions effective at noon (Pacific Time) on Friday, Sept. 7, 2018.”

Campfire bans were partially rescinded for the Coastal, Southeast and Northwest fire centres.

In the Cariboo Fire Centre, Category 2 and 3 open fires remain prohibited, as does stubble or grass burning and the use of tiki torches, chimineas, air curtain burners, sky lanterns, fireworks, burn barrels or cages and binary exploding targets.

In the Kamloops Fire Centre, Category 2 and 3 open fires remain prohibited as does the use of tiki torches, sky lanterns, fireworks, burn barrels or cages and binary exploding targets.

In the Prince George Fire Centre, Category 2 and 3 open fires remain prohibited as does the use of air curtain burners, sky lanterns, fireworks, burn barrels or cages and binary exploding targets.
