Coastal Fire Centre lifts ban on campfires

It might be a wet weekend for camping, but at least you’ll be allowed to light a campfire.

Marg Drysdale with the Coastal Fire Centre says they’re lifting the ban.

Drysdale says if you do decide to light a fire, it can’t be larger than a half-metre high by a half-metre wide.

You also need to have a hand tool, like a shovel, nearby, or at least eight litres of water to put it out.

Fireworks, sky lanterns and burning barrels are still prohibited.
