Those marshmallows purchased during the summer months can finally be put to their intended use this weekend.
As of noon, Friday, Sept. 10, the Campbell River fire chief will lift the recreational fire ban, so beach fires, and camp fires are once again allowed, and properly prepared s’mores are back on the menu
The change comes as a result of recent rainfall, and a lowered fire danger rating.
Residents are advised there is still a ban on open burning that does not fall into the recreational fire category. So backyard burns, and the burning of waste are still not allowed.
