Following the Coastal Fire Centre’s rescinding of the open fire ban, the City of Campbell River is following suit and lifting its ban on all open fires, as of 12 noon on Thursday, August 28, 2014.

The public is reminded that recreational fires must be no larger than 60 centimetres (24 inches) in diameter, and beach fires should be below the high tide line and away from other driftwood.

Recreational and beach fires must be attended by an adult with equipment to extinguish the fire like bucket or hose.

Meanwhile the Quadra fire chief Sharon Clandening says the campfire ban has not been lifted for Quadra Island, it will be in place over the weekend.
