Campfires allowed east of the Fraser River

Campers and people enjoying the outdoors will be happy to learn that campfires are permitted again in the Cariboo Fire Centre east of the Fraser River.

As of Friday at noon, the Cariboo Fire Centre rescinded its campfire prohibition in this area due to cool and wet weather conditions.

The following uses will now be allowed in areas east of the Fraser River:

• campfires, as defined by the wildfire regulation

• open fires in an outdoor stove

Campfires remain prohibited in the Cariboo Fire Centre west of the Fraser River, due to dry

conditions and higher fire danger ratings.
