Wildfire warning heading into the long weekend

If you’re planning a weekend camping getaway in the interior this weekend, make sure to exercise some common sense.

With 813 wildfires burning in B.C. already, Fire Information Officer Navi Saini says increased activity in the interior only heightens the risk for more.

“As the long weekend approaches we do anticipate increased activity in the back country. It’s very important to do everything we can to prevent human-caused wildfires. Each human-caused wildfire is preventable.”

70 additional out-of-province- personnel are joining the province this weekend in the fire suppression efforts.
