The burning ban, that went into effect on Fri., June 11, was based on weather conditions and community fire safety needs
VANCOUVER — Due to relief from extremely dry conditions, Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli has lifted the total ban on recreational burning, effective 12:01 a.m. Monday, Sept. 27, for the city of Vancouver.
The burning ban, that went into effect on Fri., June 11, was based on weather conditions and community fire safety needs. There has now been significant rainfall and conditions are much more favorable for the careful use of recreational fires.
Fire Marshal Scarpelli reminds us that it is critical to follow all safety practices when using a recreational fire. Wet weather is not a guarantee that hot fire embers will not travel or that recreational fires can safely be left unattended.
