Exceptions to Fire Ban

However, the ban prohibition doesn’t apply to larger Category 3 fires or to campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller, or to cooking stoves that use gas, propane, or briquettes.
That said, anyone lighting a campfire must maintain a fireguard by removing flammable debris from around the campfire area and have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water available nearby to properly extinguish the fire.
The government said that anyone found in contravention of an open burning prohibition may be issued a violation ticket for $1,150, required to pay an administrative penalty of up to $10,000 or, if convicted in court, fined up to $100,000 and/or sentenced to one year in jail.
If the contravention causes or contributes to a wildfire, the person responsible may be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs.
The prohibition will remain in effect until the public is otherwise notified, the government said.To report a wildfire, unattended campfire, or open burning violation, call 1 800 663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.
The latest information on current wildfire activity, burning restrictions, road closures and air quality advisories is available on the government’s website.

BC Parks have informed me that campfires as described above should be legal until the July long weekend. They will contact me if that changes and upon notice I would then post those changes here.

We should be careful about camp fires because forest fires are occurring more often these days. That is one of the impact of climate change. Because the forest floors are so dry, one tiny spark can ignite a massive fire. Just recently, California against suffered a sweeping forest fire that destroyed homes and displaced people and animal. No matter how many rangers we put in vulnerable places, we can't fight the wrath of Mother Nature. We should our brave firefighters for always laying their lives on the line to protect us and our homes.
