Outdoor Burning – Public Urged to Use Caution

BC Wildfire Service is reminding the public to be extra cautious with any open burning.  The Peace Region area is experiencing below-normal snowpack levels and some areas of the Prince George Fire Centre are already snow-free. As the snow melts, it won’t take long for the grass to dry out and become flammable, especially in windy conditions.  Please see the attached bulletin for more info.  

A poster explaining the different categories of open burning is available here:  Open Fire Regulations
