Fire bans are lifted in the Prince George Fire Centre

The rescinding of the current prohibition, as of noon today, applies to all BC parks, crown, and private lands.

However, it does not apply within the boundaries of local governments, which have local forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by their own fire departments.

The Prince George Centre which covers all of Northeast B.C., includes Fort St. John, Dawson Creek, and Fort Nelson, as well as Prince George.

It is the largest forest jurisdiction in the province, with an area totaling 31.8 million hectares.

As we near the end of the first two months of the current fire season, 56 fires have been reported as of yesterday, the highest total of the six jurisdictions in the province.

The Kamloops Centre was next at 53 and also had the second highest burn area of 263 hectares, trailing the Prince George Centre, with 334.

Province wide, the six centre totals through yesterday was 191 fires and 979 hectares.
