Fire Prohibition Update

By Nuxalk Nation on May 17, 2024

“As of 12pm today, the Coastal Fire Centre (Nuxalk Territory/Bella Coola Valley) has prohibited Category 2 and Category 3 open fires to reduce wildfire risk and protect public safety. This does not include a ban on campfires, yet. This prohibition will be in place until October 31, 2024, or until it is rescinded. 

Please see the attached photo for more info on what constitutes Category 2 and 3 open fires. If you'd like to read the whole press release, which includes details on fines and penalties, you can find that here

To report a wildfire or an open fire violation, call 1-800-663-5555 toll-free, or *5555 on a cell phone.
