Victoria, BC– Effective 12:00pm on June 27, 2015, a campfire ban will be implemented at Island View Beach and Jordan River Regional Parks Campgrounds. The Capital Regional District has been informed that the Coastal Fire Centre is implementing the campfire ban due to dry conditions and rising temperatures. The ban is intended to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety. The ban will stay in effect until lifted by the BC Wildfire Management Branch.
