Campfires allowed within City of Terrace boundaries

Wet conditions mean campfires are OK but other forms of burning are still prohibited

Due to a low fire hazard caused primarily by wet conditions, the Terrace Fire Department has decided to lift the campfire ban within the City of Terrace.

Campfires are permitted, but other forms of burning are still prohibited, said the city’s communications and business development officer Brian Doddridge this morning, July 28.

The city had issued a ban on all burning July 10 throughout the Terrace boundaries with the exception of Ferry Island because the fire department and the city’s leisure services department had put together a fire safety plan to mitigate risks, said Doddridge at that time.
