Open Fires prohibited in Prince George Fire Centre Area- PRRD

Open fires to be prohibited in Prince George Fire Centre – This includes the Peace River Regional District 

PRINCE GEORGE – Effective at 8 a.m. on Monday, July 10, 2017, all open fires (including campfires) are prohibited throughout the Prince George Fire Centre’s jurisdiction to help prevent human-caused wildfires and protect public safety.

This prohibition is being implemented due to current weather conditions and the volume of fires that the BC Wildfire Service is responding to in the northeast part of the province. More lightning is in the forecast within the fire centre, and firefighting resources must focus on existing fires and new, naturally occurring fires.

This prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 21, 2017, or until the public is otherwise notified. A map of the affected areas is available online: http://ow.ly/ijI730dvhqB
