Early Warning from BC Wildfire Service

Prince George, BC, Canada / CKPG News

Heavy snow still blankets many parts of southern BC, but conditions are much drier in northern parts of the province and that is prompting an early warning from the BC Wildfire Service. It’s urging residents in the Peace region and throughout the Prince George Fire Centre to take extreme care as they plan outdoor burning over the next few weeks. The Wildfire Service says it responded to 79 fires that charred more than 140 square kilometres of bush in April of last year, and it notes similar weather conditions are expected this year.
