The risk of wildfires remains high or extreme in many parts of B.C., despite the summer of 2017 nearing its end.

With this in mind, the BC government is urging the public to exercise caution and remain vigilant in the prevention of wildfires.

Given the state of a heightened wildfire risk and in the interests of public safety, the Province is strongly recommending that people stay completely out of the backcountry within the Cariboo, Southeast, and Kamloops Fire Centres.
