Campfires to be allowed again in Vanderhoof

Effective at noon on Thursday, Sept. 7, campfires are once again be allowed in the Vanderhoof Forest District, including Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake.

Amanda Reynolds, Fire Information Officer for the BC Wildfire Service says “The Vanderhoof Forest District is the last of the districts within the Prince George Fire Centre to have the campfire ban lifted. The campfire ban for the Fort St. James Fire District was rescinded on August 23.”

The combination of a return to more seasonal weather conditions and recent precipitation in the area, have reduced the risk of wildfire in the area.

However, the prohibition against open fires larger than a campfire (0.5 metres by 0.5 metres) as well as fireworks will remain in effect within the entire Prince George Fire Centre and tickets will still be issued for anyone burning a larger fire or using fireworks.
