Get ready for a late summer of forest fires. A Fire Information Officer says B.C.’s forests have quickly dried out over the past few weeks. The officer, Kim Steinbart says some areas are creeping up to extreme fire-danger ratings and, as the hot and dry weather continues, that risk will continue to increase.

As of yesterday, there were 97 forest fires burning in B.C., now making it the hottest fire zone in the country. In anticipation of more fire starts, the Provincial Forest Service has requested 4 aircraft from the Yukon. In addition, 2 air tankers and 1 birddog have returned to the Province from California.

Once again the public is requested to report all forest fire sitings, by calling 1-800-663-5555 or, *5555 on most cellular networks.
