Forest fire rating increases with hot weather

 

Fire wardens continue to discover abandoned campfires and encounter other burning violations. So far this season, 55 campfires have escaped and caused wildfires. 

Many regions of B.C., particularly the south, are experiencing well-above normal temperatures, which means the risk for wildfire starts is increasing. With hot and dry conditions expected through the weekend, it is critical that the public remains vigilant. 

The fire danger rating for the province is currently moderate to high.  In Northeast B.C., the danger rating ranges from moderate to extreme.
