Starting 12:00 noon on Thursday, July 28, the District of Kitimat will implement a Category 2 and Category 3 open burning prohibition.
Open fires are anything larger than allowed backyard fire pits in Kitimat, which are one metre by one metre in size, or 1.5 metres in certain neighbourhoods. This open burning prohibition does not affect campfires or backyard fires. You can learn more about backyard fires at www.kitimat.ca/fire.
This prohibition runs concurrent to the Northwest Fire Centre's own similar prohibition, and is in response to forecasted high temperatures through the week.
More information about open burning is available online at https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/fire-bans-and-restrictions/open-burning.
To report a wildfire, unattended campfire or open burning violation, call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cell phone or through the BC Wildfire Service mobile app.
