Open burning still not allowed in Kelowna

Any type of open burning is still not permitted in the city of Kelowna. Open burning season is Oct. 1 through April 30, with a permit.

Although the campfire ban has been lifted in the Central Okanagan, any type of open burning is not permitted in the city of Kelowna.

Open burning requires written permission from the City of Kelowna Fire Department and is only allowed during open burning season (Oct. 1 through April 30), when the Venting Index is 65 or greater and air quality is good.

Anyone caught burning without a Burning Permit or breaking the rules of their permit may be subject to fines up to $2,000. Kelowna’s forest fire risk rating is still high.

If you notice smoke, contact Kelowna Fire Department dispatch at 250-469-8801.
