Please be advised that the fire department at this time can not take your bottles and cans due to Corvid-19 concerns.
If you could please hang onto them until further notice. At that time we will have a rather large bottle sort.
Thank you for understanding.
Hopefully this will be over soon.

Fire remediation has started from the Green Lake Snowmobile Clubhouse to Buffalo Ranch (access 7). They are thinning, pruning and cleaning up dead fall, 300 ft from the end of off shore property lines to create a fire break.

Thunderstorms

With the recent thunderstorm activity, there were a lot of fires started.

Check out the news article from the BC Wildfire website.

Bonaparte Lake Evacuation Order

I just received this notice of an evacuation order for Bonaparte Lake effective tonight (Wednesday, July 28) at 8:00 pm. I am guessing that it’ s from the recent lightning activity last night.

For more info check the BC Forest Fire Information Website.

Cariboo Fire Restrictions – July 29

I guess that it was only a matter of time before the decision to move to a complete ban was put in place.

Effective at Noon on Thursday, July 29 there will be a complete ban on open burning  including campfires and fireworks.

From what I have heard, the South Green Lake Firefighters have already been out on a house fire this past weekend, and it could have easily been a lot more serious given the extreme dryness of the ground cover.

According to the Provincial Government Website: “Anyone found in violation of an open fire ban, including campfires, may be issued a ticket for $345. Should a wildfire occur as a result of recklessness, a person can be fined up to $1 million or spend three years in prison and be ordered to pay all firefighting and associated costs.”

More information can be obtained from the Provincial Government Website
