City of Terrace Concerned Over Unattended Campfires

The City of Terrace is urging people to be more careful -- after reporting that the Fire Department had responded to many small, unattended campfires throughout the city.

In a post on Facebook, the city reminded residents that the Fire Danger Rating is still "Moderate" for the area -- and the minimal rain the city is receiving will not significantly impact the fire risk.

The Fire Hazard is also "Moderate" in most parts of Northern BC -- except for the far northwest around Dease Lake and Telegraph Creek, where the hazard is still "High" to "Extreme".

Yesterday, the Bulkley-Nechako Regional District completely rescinded the Evacuation Alert for all properties near the Lejac Wildfire east of Fraser Lake.

The BC Wildfire Service says the fire is 70 percent contained and guarded.

The 236-hectare fire is being worked on by 56 firefighters, two helicopters and 10 pieces of heavy equipment.
