Warm weather to increase Forest Fire risk

The Prince George Fire Centre says the wildfire risk will increase this weekend.

Warm, dry weather is predicted for the area north of Fort St. John and in the Fort Nelson area. The forecast of high temperatures and lower humidity will contribute to drier forest fuels.

So far this season, the Prince George Fire Centre has responded to 19 wildfires, all caused by humans. The Fire Centre urges the public to be extremely cautious this weekend when using fire.

Smoke from Alberta is moving across the border and affecting some parts of the northeast. Most of the smoke is expected in the Fort Nelson area.
