Open burning of hand piles is now permitted on Denman Island. A hand piled fire is to be no bigger than 3 meters by 3 meters.
Machine piles are also permitted but must have a permit issued by the Fire Chief.
Please burn responsibly by ensuring that enough people, water, and tools are on hand to control and stop your fire from spreading. Do not burn in windy conditions and only burn when the venting index is good. Please check this website for current venting conditions. Never leave a fire unattended.
Make sure that any fire is fully extinguished, and the ashes are cold to the touch before leaving the area for any length of time.
