The hotter, drier weather has already contributed to ten new wildfires in the Prince George Fire Centre.

The fires all began in the northern Fort Nelson area over the weekend and were caused by lightning.

Seven of the ten fires have already been put out, two are in the process of being put out and the final fire is being closely monitored.

Fire Information Officer Jill Chimko with the Prince George Fire Centre says the overall fire danger rating is still considered low to moderate across the Centre. However, she says there are certain areas with a high fire danger rating, which includes an area covering 35 kilometres south of Fort Nelson, north to the Yukon border.

Currently, Fort St. John still has a moderate rating, but Chimko says that can easily change with even a day of sunshine.

Anyone who spots a wildfire or an unattended campfire is asked to call 1-800-663-5555 or *5555 on a cell phone.
