PARKSVILLE – Effective at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018, all open burning will once again be allowed throughout the Coastal Fire Centre’s jurisdiction. This is due to recent rainfall and cooler temperatures, which have reduced wildfire risks in the region.
All open fires will be permitted, along with the use of tiki torches, burn barrels, fireworks, sky lanterns and binary exploding targets. People undertaking any open burning should use caution and be aware of local conditions that might impact their ability to burn safely and control their open fires.
