As summer approaches and residents prepare their patios and yards for warmer weather, the City reminds residents to be aware of local smoke control and fire prevention bylaws.
The City of Kelowna Fire Prevention Regulation Bylaw No. 6110 regulates open burning and wood burning appliances. Different restrictions are in place for other municipalities in the Central Okanagan. Residents in other areas should speak with their Fire Department to check local restrictions and see if campfires or wood burning appliances are allowed, and if permits are required.
