Firefighters fined and issued warning tickets defying campfire ban.

The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations confirmed Wednesday that the group of B.C. firefighters who ignored the province’s campfire bans was fined $1,150, and three warning tickets were issued.

The investigations were sparked by a Rusty Clark’s Facebook post, who uploaded several photos on July 11 of a group standing around a campfire. His post included photos of some of the men’s licence plate numbers, as well as a nearby sign indicating that campfires were prohibited.

Some of the bans in place at the time of the incident were lifted the day the fine was confirmed.
