Category 3 Fire Ban Begins On Wednesday At Noon

The Southeast Fire Centre is set to ban Category 3 open fires starting tomorrow.

Spokesperson Ashley Davidoff has background, saying "What that means is that any fire larger than two metres high by three metres wide is no longer going to be allowable, also three or more concurrently burning piles no large than two metres high by three metres wide are also not allowable."

Davidoff says that other fires are still fine for now "Category 2 burning as well as campfires are still allowable in the Southeast Fire Centre."

The Southeast Fire Centre covers both Revelstoke and Golden.
