Campfire restrictions remain

NewsJoanne Eisemann

THE PARKS and Wildlife Service (PWS) is reminding everyone that campfire restrictions are still in place across all national parks, reserves and Crown Land state-wide until further notice.

PWS General Manager Jason Jacobi said PWS campfire restrictions will remain in place indefinitely due to elevated soil dryness and the risk of new fire starts, at a time when there is a significant number of fires already burning across the state.

Under the PWS campfire restrictions, campfires, pot stoves and any fuel stove that burn coal, wood or plant material are NOT permitted.
