Forest fuels in southwest British Columbia are unseasonably dry. Without any significant precipitation in the forecast, it is expected that forest fuels will continue to dry. Dry fine fuels combined with an anticipated wind event this evening could lead to potentially hazardous burning conditions. Forest industry stakeholders are asked to ensure adequate protocols are in place to prevent the start of wildfires, and respond to a wildfire.

The Coastal Fire Centre appreciates the coastal forest industries’ continued cooperation and efforts in fire prevention, detection and reporting wildfires.
