Prince George, Cariboo fire bans lifted
Campfire and open fire bans are being rescinded today in the Cariboo and the Prince George fire centres.
As of noon today, campfires and all open fires will be permitted in the Prince George fire centre.
B.C. is basically divided in half when it comes to the recent fire weather situation.
Coastal and central sections of B.C. have been receiving much more in the way of showers these past few weeks as weather gets directed up and over the south coast
After a few unsettled days for the south coast and interior, dry and warm weather is back for most of the week and fire risk will continue to remain high.
In the Cariboo fire centre, the current campfire ban is being lifted at noon today. All other open burning remains prohibited.
Campfires can't be bigger than half a metre wide by half a metre tall, and anyone who lights a fire must have a hand tool, such as a shovel, or at least eight litres of water nearby to fully extinguish the campfire.
All other open burning remains prohibited within the Cariboo fire centre, including burning of industrial or backyard waste.
Campfire bans remain in place for the Kamloops and and the majority of the Coastal Fire centres.
