The venting index today is good and tomorrow is good. This may change throughout the day. Please burn responsibly and respect your neighbors. If your smoke becomes a nuisance you will be asked to put your fire out.
Backyard burning and burn barrels are now allowed without a permit, subject to the venting index. However, machine piles or category 3 piles must be registered(1-888-797-1717) and be inspected by an authorized member of the fire department before burning.(https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/wildfire-status/prevention/fire-bans-and-restrictions/open-burning.
Please consider other measures before burning.
