The City of Penticton has rescinded its temporary fire ban, due to a change in the fire danger rating within the Kamloops Fire Centre.
The ban, issued on July 16, was lifted as of noon, Wednesday, Aug. 27, for all areas of the city.
Fire pits will be re-installed on Okanagan Lake and Skaha Lake Beaches Thursday.
The public is encouraged to continue to restrict their campfire to be no larger than half-metre by half-metre in size and have hand tools like shovels, and large quantities of water available nearby to extinguish it.
People are further advised to never leave a campfire unattended and make sure ashes are completely cold to the touch before leaving the area.
Anyone who causes a wildfire through arson or recklessness may be fined up to $1 million, spend up to three years in prison and be held accountable for associated firefighting costs.
