Campfire and beach fire ban now in effect

The campfire ban took effect at noon today, banning all campfires and beach fires in Campbell River because of dry weather. 

The ban follows the Coastal Fire Centre, which has prohibited campfires for all of Vancouver Island and the south coast of BC. All recreational fires, including campfires, beach fires and backyard fires, are prohibited along with all open burning, fireworks, sky lanterns and burning barrels. 

Propane firepits, barbecues and cooking stoves that use liquid or gaseous fuel are allowed at this time, but, in extreme fire conditions, they may also be prohibited.
