While highs in the Interior have hovered in the 30s for weeks, campfires remain permitted across the province.
In a Tweet Friday, the BC Wildfire Service says none of the six regional fire centres in the province have reached the threshold where a campfire ban is necessary.
“Multiple factors are taken into consideration when assessing wildfire hazards and deciding whether to implement, or rescind, an open fire prohibition, including current and forecasted weather conditions, the availability of firefighting resources, and the Buildup Index,” the BCWS says.
