Due to the hot and dry weather over the week, and into the weekend, the fire danger rating throughout the Prince George Fire Centre continues to rise.
The risk for a wildfire is very high right now, and in an effort to reduce the number of human-caused fires, the Fire Centre has implemented a campfire ban.
Officials are encouraging campers to use either charcoal or gas grills when they are outdoors.
To report a wildfire or unattended campfire call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on most cellular networks. For more information on open fire restrictions or for updates on current wildfire activity, visit www.bcwildfire.ca.
