Due to changing weather conditions, Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli has lifted the recreational burning ban within the city of Vancouver, effective at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 20.
Recreational fires, campfires and fires in outdoor fireplaces or chimney-type devices are now allowed. This order applies to areas within the city limits only.
All outdoor burning of things like brush/vegetation and garbage is still prohibited within the city limits.
The burn ban originally took effect on July 26, due to very dry and windy weather conditions.
