Re: BC Forest FiresMay 18th, 2019
To date there have been 138 fires in the province - 34 new ones started in the last two days. This in spite of all the precipitation we've had lately. There are 27 fires of note the largest encompassing 500 hectares but the majority being in the two digit hectare range.
The danger rating for the Boo has been lowered to moderate for now but the fire service informs us that as little as four days of hot windy weather could change that rating to extreme.
Thankfully our area has been blessed with constant showers that are able to soak into the ground. This is our 5th day of cool damp weather.
