Wildfire Update

With a severe thunderstorm watch issued for the North Peace, the Prince George Fire Centre is warning back country visitors, to take extra care with campfires this weekend.

Crews have responded to five fires since Monday, including the 20 hectare blaze, in the Tommy Lakes area.

However, the centre is obviously hoping to keep human started fires to a minimum, fearing the worst from storm related lightning strikes.

The current fire danger rating is high to extreme, throughout the fire centre but, nowhere is it any worse than in the drought stricken Peace.

Since the unofficial start of the fire season on April first, crews have responded to 216 fires in the centre and, more than half of them have been human-caused.
