Campfire Ban in Effect for the Township of Spallumcheen 

Based on recommendations of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Deputy Fire Chief and the guidance of BC Wildfire, a campfire ban will come in effect on Friday, July 12, 2024 at noon within the Township of Spallumcheen. The campfire ban is being put in effect due to the continued hot and dry weather bringing an increased fire danger rating and is intended to help prevent human-caused fires and protect public safety. This campfire prohibition will remain in effect until further notice.  

In addition to campfires, the following is currently prohibited within the Township:

• The use of sky lanterns
• The use of binary exploding targets,
• The use of tiki and similar kinds of torches,
• The use of chimineas,
• The use of outdoor stoves or other portable campfire apparatus without a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) or Underwriter Laboratories of Canada (ULC) rating,
• The use of air curtain burners,
•  The use of fireworks is only permitted within the Township in the last week of October (and only if there is not a fire ban in effect); otherwise, fireworks are not permitted.


  • Open Burning concluded April 30 and is currently not allowed
  • Burn Barrels are NEVER PERMITTED in the Township
If you have a campfire, or are burning during a ban, please note that enforcement action may commence.
