CENTRAL OKANAGAN - Cool temperatures and rain in the forecast means the ban on campfires ended at noon today, Sept. 2, in most of the Central Okanagan.

The ban was put in place on Aug. 19.

Campfires are not allowed anytime within the City of Kelowna boundaries.

Bruce Smith with the Central Okanagan Regional District said in a press release the decision had been made by local fire chiefs.
