Effective at noon on May 15, 2014, the size of open fires will be restricted in most of the Kamloops Fire Centre to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect the public.
This prohibition applies to all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre except the Clearwater Fire Zone and the Salmon Arm Fire Zone. The Clearwater Fire Zone and the Salmon Arm Fire Zone will become subject to this prohibition on June 15, 2014, when all open burning will be prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre.
Anyone lighting Category two or three fires outside of those two zones must extinguish any such fires by noon on May 15. This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15, 2014, or until further notice.
