In the last week there have been 2 instances that campfires have been abandoned without being put out. It is vitally important to put campfires out before leaving the area.Please be responsible when having campfires as it is extremely dry and it wouldn’t take much to have a bad fire season.

Pavilion Forest Fire

Anyone in the South Cariboo will have noticed the amount of smoke in the air within the last hour. It is coming from a fire near Pavilion Lake. I believe Hwy 99 is currently closed. The size at 6:30 pm was 20 hectares and there are ground and air crews fighting it.
