Effective at noon on July 6, and until further notice, Category 2 and 3 open fires are permitted in the Dawson Creek zone.

The lifting of this category 2 and 3 ban applies within BC Parks and to all public (Crown) and private land outside of organized areas. It does not apply within municipalities or regional districts that have their own burning bylaws or bans. Please check with your local authorities before lighting a fire.

This category 2 and 3 ban has been rescinded due to the fire danger being lowered by recent rainfall and cooler temperatures throughout the entire Prince George Fire Centre.

This open fire ban was in effect to protect public safety and to limit the risk of person-caused wildfires.

To report a wildfire or unattended campfire call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks. For more information on open fire restrictions or for updates on current wildfire activity, visit www.bcwildfire.ca.
