      A quick reminder for long weekend campers in B.C.: you can have campfires again.

      The B.C. Wildfire Service lifted the ban on Friday (August 28) after some much-needed wet weather hit the province.

      Bonfires and fireworks are still banned in most areas of the province.

      The ban was initially put in place on July 3 due to extremely dry conditions in B.C.

      Campfires cannot be more than half a metre in height or width and must have a one-metre fireguard in place. Campers must also have eight litres of water and a shovel on hand to extinguish flames.

      Anyone who sees a wildfire or unattended campfire is asked to call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on your cellphone.

      In other news, it's snowing in Whistler.
