Prohibition for open fires set for Kamloops Fire Centre

Effective at 12 noon on Tuesday, May 15, the size of open fires will be restricted in most of the Kamloops Fire Centre

Effective at 12 noon on Tuesday, May 15, the size of  open fires will be restricted in most of the Kamloops Fire Centre to  help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public.

Since April 1, Kamloops Fire Centre crews have responded to wildfire  incidents covering more than 100 hectares. Many of these wildfires  resulted from poorly planned open burning.

 

This prohibition applies to all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre  except the Clearwater and Salmon Arm fire zones. Anyone conducting  Category two or three fires outside of those two zones must extinguish such  fires by noon on May 15. This prohibition will remain in effect until  Oct. 15, or until further notice.
