No fires allowed in Whistler this weekend

Whistler's fire danger rating is high
Campfires are prohibited in Whistler this weekend.

Heads up, Whistler weekend warriors: no fires are allowed in the resort this weekend.

As of June 2, Whistler's fire danger rating was listed as "high," which means campfires are automatically prohibited in municipal boundaries.

"A CSA-rated or ULC-rated portable campfire apparatus that uses propane fuel is allowed in Whistler, so long as the height of the flame is less than 15 centimetres and it is used in accordance with the manufacturer recommendations," reads the Resort Municipality of Whistler's (RMOW) website.

Residents and visitors are reminded to be very cautious and watchful and report all fires in Whistler immediately by dialing 911.

Fires outside of Whistler should be reported to the BC Wildfire Service at 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 (toll-free on most cell networks).

Beyond Whistler, a Category 2 and 3 burning ban remains in effect for the Coastal Fire Centre.
