Effective immediately, there is a campfire ban within the Tulameen & District Fire Protection Area.
Although small camp fires are still allowed in other parts of the Kamloops Fire Centre, due to irresponsible campfire use and in the interest of public safety, there is now a restriction here. Please be advised that this also applies to private land. Failure to comply with a ban can result in fines, and there are heavy penalties for those found to be responsible for starting a wildfire. §
UPDATE: Effective at noon on Friday, July 3, 2015, all open fires – including campfires – will be prohibited throughout the entire Kamloops Fire Centre. This prohibition will remain in place until the public is otherwise notified.
