Campfires are again being allowed in many areas of the province.
Effective at noon today, the campfire ban will be lifted for the Kamloops, Southeast and Cariboo fire centres.
The BC Wildfire Service says the change to more seasonal weather and recent precipitation have reduced the fire risk in these areas.
The Service reminds the public that Category 2 and 3 open fires, which are fires larger than half metre by half metre, remain banned.
The use of sky lanterns, binary exploding targets, air curtain burners, fireworks (including firecrackers) and burning barrels or burning cages are once again allowed in the Kamloops and Cariboo fire centres, but not in the Southeast Centre.
The use of tiki torches and chimineas are now allowed in all three fire centres as of noon on Sept. 22.
People lighting a campfire must have ready access to eight litres of water or a shovel during the entire time the campfire is lit.
They also must completely extinguish the campfire and the ashes must be cold to the touch before they leave the area for any length of time.
Although the off-road vehicle prohibition in the Cariboo Fire Centre, Kamloops Fire Centre and Southeast Fire Centre was rescinded on Wednesday, the public is reminded that area restrictions are in effect in the vicinity of some wildfires in these fire centres.
