CLARIFICATION OF
BURNING REGULATIONS
POWELL RIVER FIRE RESCUE

 

All outdoor burning is prohibited within the city limits year round.
This includes but is not limited to: backyard campfires, beach fires, wood-burning chimeras, fire pits and makeshift wood-stoves or other wood-burning devices.
Burning is regulated through the Backyard Burning Bylaw 1931 and the Fire Prevention Bylaw 1932. These bylaws take precedent over provincial fire regulations.
The exceptions to this prohibition are as follows:
 Fire pits, bowls or barbeques that are fuelled by propane, gel, charcoal or natural gas are permitted; however, flame height must be kept under 6”.
 Campfires at registered sites at the Willingdon Beach campsite subject to bans dependent on weather conditions. This does not include fires on the beach.
 Special Occasion fires for public events approved by permit by the Fire Chief.
 Backyard burning for the purposes of removal of yard refuse during the months of April and November only, permits and other restrictions apply.   
 
Failure to comply could result in a $200 fine. For further information on city bylaws refer to www.powellriver.ca/content/bylaws.
