The Regional District of Central Okanagan is reminding residents that smoking and open fires are not allowed at any time in regional parks.
This comes after the City of West Kelowna Fire Rescue put out a dangerous fire at the Smith Creek entrance to Upper Glenmore Regional Park in the early morning of July 29.
“This is just plain dangerous given our high and rising fire danger not to mention it’s illegal,” said the regional district on Facebook.
“Smoking and open fires are not allowed anytime in our regional parks. Please don’t be the person that causes a fire. If you see any fire or smoke, please call 911 and report it.”
