    Effective midnight August 4, 2005 and until further notice, Category 1 open fires (including campfires) are banned in select areas of the Coastal Fire Centre. Affected areas include Vancouver Island south of Campbell River, all Georgia Strait islands south of Hernando Island including the southern Gulf Islands and the Howe Sound islands, and the Chilliwack and Squamish Forest Districts.
