City of Terrace rescinds campfire ban

The City of Terrace is rescinding the campfire ban issued on July 17, 2014, announced the city July 21.

Open burning of any size or description, including fires with a burn registration number and industrial burning are still restricted within the jurisdiction of the City of Terrace, but small campfires will be permitted.

The campfires must be kept to a half-metre high by a half-metre wide or smaller.
