The campfire ban in Sooke has been lifted — 23 Comments

  1. Wow we were at the Port Renfrew Beach camping this weeeknd and they said until there was three full days of rain there would be NO campfires…so when the weatherman is wrong this weekend and we get no more rain? scary

  2. yahoo campfire songs! If U are responsible & have the proper setup & have a hose handy to the fire as a precaution I am referring to backyard fires not campfires.

  3. So wrong – move a wet area and just beneath is BONE DRY. This could be one of the more stupid decisions made. As a community – lets NOT match that stupidity and lets all wait for next weekend for a campfire – if the predicted rains do occur.

    • Not kidding, if the next few days where 30°C and sun, I don’t think that the ban would be lifted so soon, but we are in for some major rain so I think it’s safe to say that the ban is safe to lift for now.

    • I think waiting until after the rain would make more sense. That predicted downpour has now been changed to light rain on Saturday and a chance of showers on Sunday.

  4. If the next few days where 30°C and sun, I don’t think that the ban would be lifted so soon, but we are in for some major rain so I think it’s safe to say that the ban can lift for now.

  5. So, should we start a betting pool going to see how long it takes some idiots fire to get out of control? The winner can donate their winnings to the local fire department for offsetting the cost of fighting said fires.
