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.
