Now that the glampers have packed it in for the season, real campers can get out and have a good ol’ fashioned campfire again.
Story from the Vancouver Sun
Late-summer B.C. campers can now have a campfire in some parts of the province.
The B.C. Wildfire Service lifted the campfire ban for the Coastal Fire Centre on Sept. 18. Campfires remain banned in the Kamloops, Caribbo and Southeast Fire Centres.
The service notes that fireworks and firecrackers, sky lanterns, binary exploding targets and burn barrels and cages remain banned.
The ban on open fires larger than a campfire — or larger than 0.5 metres wide by 0.5 metres high — also remains in place in the Coast Fire Centre, except for the fog zone on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
The Coastal Fire Centre extends from the southern tip of Vancouver Island, north to northern end of Haida Gwaii, and from parts of the central coast south to U.S. borde, just east of Chilliwack and Abbotsford.
