Prince George, B.C. – Three males have been hit with a hefty fine after being found sitting around a campfire near Vernon.
RCMP Staff Sergeant Annie Linteau says around 10 last night Vernon RCMP members attended the Rail Trail area off West Kalamalka Lake after receiving a complaint about a small fire burning. when officers arrived on scene, they cam found three males sitting around a campfire. Campfires have been banned throughout the Province. “Winds were gusty and small embers were gently flying from the campfire” says Staff Sergeant Linteau.
The three males were issued a fine of $1150.00 under the Wildfire Act and the fire department was called to ensure the campfire was completely extinguished.

As Ron White says “you can’t fix stupid”!!
Hope the fine was each, not a total! Should get community time too, like picking up cigarette butts, etc?
hope it was $1150 each, plus the cost of the fire department, plus ban from fishing and Hunting privilages for five years. Need to keep these idiots out of the bush.
nope divide that by three.
there were two others in Tweedsmuir that got two fines totaling $1,233 so the fines aren’t even consistent.
So as usually sound tuff and be marshmallows.
The amounts are different because the ones in Tweedsmuir were also fined for accessing the park while it was closed.
Give them shovels and put them on the fire line..
Sure they where males. I though gender depended on how a person felt on any given day, just saying. Not trying to make an issue.
So true. But the real problem is the people accommodating this behavior.
The rules apply to everyone but them as they are SPECIAL
