The provincial government has lifted its campfire ban.
As of noon Thursday you can spark up a campfire. A number of municipalities jumped the gun and drop the ban some weeks ago.
The provincial government’s ban on open fire however, is still in place. So, burning barrels, tiki torches, binary targets, fireworks and the like is still prohibited.
Provincial officials says changes in the weather have allowed for the campfire ban to come to an end.
Meanwhile, the Cariboo Regional District has lifted evacuation orders for the northwest side of Quesnel lake and an all clear has been given to the Maeford Lake area.
As well, multiple communities west of the Fraser River have also been given the all clear sign. They include: Anahim Lake, Ulkatcho First Nation, Nimpo Lake, Titetown, Batnuni Lake area, Nazko First Nation area and for areas west of Fraser River.
