Campfires are allowed again after the Southeast Fire Centre rescinded its ban Monday afternoon.

Campfires are allowed again in the Revelstoke area after the Southeast Fire Centre lifted the ban Monday afternoon.

The move came about due to the onset of cooler temperatures and wet weather this week.

The City of Revelstoke has yet to lift their own campfire ban, however it usually follows the lead of the fire centre. We will update this story as soon it does so.

With the lifting of the campfire ban, fires up to a half-metre high and half-metre wide are allowed, as are fires in an outdoor stove.

Anyone lighting a fire must be able to extinguish it and must not leave it unattended.

Fires more than a half-metre wide are still banned, as are fireworks, sky lanterns, burning barrels, grass burning, and the use of binary exploding targets.
