Vancouver fire marshal lifts recreational burn ban

By , Columbian Assistant Metro Editor

Due to recent rains and anticipated cooler weather, Vancouver Fire Marshal Heidi Scarpelli lifted the recreational burn ban within city limits effective this morning.

Recreational fires, campfires, and fires in outdoor fireplaces or chimney-type devices are now allowed.

All outdoor burning of brush, vegetation and garbage is still prohibited within the city limits.
