Backyard Fires Suspended
The City of Kimberley is suspending all backyard fire permits until further notice. This will help ensure that local air quality remains as high as possible for those with respiratory concerns. It will also help reduce unnecessary calls to the Kimberley Fire Department. CSA-approved gas burning appliances such as outdoor barbeques and heaters are still permitted as long as they are utilized in accordance with the manufacturers guidelines. This coincides with a Provincial ban on all open fires within the region.
