The Pender Harbour Fire Protection District, which put a ban into force shortly after the Cecil Hill wildfire, has also lifted its ban. 

Campfires must be kept to under 0.5 metres across and water or tools to put out the fire should be within easy reach.

The Coastal Fire Centre has yet to impose a ban this summer.
