Wildfire Caution

/ 97.3 The Eagle

As spring approaches, B-C Wildfire Service is reminding the public and businesses to be cautious when doing any outdoor burning. They say in April of last year, crews responded to 79 fires throughout the province that consumed 14-thousand hectares. The Peace Region and areas around the Prince George Fire Centre are experiencing below-normal snowpack levels, meaning that as snow melts it won’t take long for grass to dry out and become flammable. With weather conditions looking similar to last year, residents are warned not to start new fires in windy conditions and to never leave fires unattended.
