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
