Share on:

June 16, 2015

Langley City Fire Rescue Service would like to remind residents that the City of Langley does not permit open air burning.  This includes any open flame device, fire pits, open air fires or any similar appliances except for grills or barbecues used for the purpose of cooking food that utilize natural gas, propane or briquettes as a fuel source, as noted in Langley City Fire Protection and Safety Bylaw No. 2784.

Failure to adhere to the open air burning regulations may result in a fine of $200.00 under the City’s Municipal Ticket Information System Bylaw No. 2846.

These regulations are necessary in order to assure the enjoyment of property for all residents of the City and to eliminate the fire hazards associated with uncontrolled fires. Any questions about these bylaw requirements should be directed to the Fire Prevention Officer at Langley City Fire Rescue Service at 604-514-2883 or via email to

Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the City of Langley fire safe.
