Fire ban issued for Prince George Fire Centre

Advertisement

The Prince George Fire Centre has issued a ban against medium and large open fires.

The prohibition includes burning piles of garbage or slash that are more than half a metre in height or diameter. Residents also can not burn any grass or stubble or use fireworks.

Barbeques or other outdoor stoves are allowed as long as they use gas, propane, or briquettes.

Campfires are also allowed as long as they are under the above size restrictions.

People who disobey the ban could face a $345 fine.

The restrictions apply to all provincial parks, crown land, and private land outside of cities with their own fire bylaws, so residents within Fort St. John must abide by city bylaws with respect to outdoor fires.

Residents are asked to report a wildfire or unattended campfire by dialing *5555 on their cell phones or by calling 1-800-663-5555.
