Township of Langley fire ban remains in effect despite rain

  • Sep. 15, 2015 1:00 p.m.

Despite the return of cooler temperatures and some rainfall, the Township of Langley Fire Department advises residents that outdoor burning is not yet allowed.

Fire officials will wait until there is a significant amount of rainfall and conditions are not so dangerously dry before lifting the ban.

If weather conditions change and water supplies improve over the next few days, burning may be permitted next week.

Until then, the Township said, it has zero tolerance for burning offenders and those who contravene the ban will face fines exceeding $200.

Water restrictions have been returned to Stage Two by Metro Vancouver, but it is still too dry to allow burning.

Under normal conditions, the Township’s burning season runs between Sept. 1 and Oct. 31.

For more information, call the Langley fire department at 604-532-7500.
