Fire hazard remains ‘low’

Category: 

The forest fire hazard remains “low” across the province as the result of continued cold, wet weather.

There are now about 570 Ontario fire personnel supporting the firefighting effort in British Columbia, including the 232 FireRangers, support staff and Incident Management Team members who traveled out on the weekend.

It marks the highest number of resources from Ontario into British Columbia at one time.

Support is also being provided with fire suppression equipment including water pumps, fire hose and portable water tanks.

There were no new fires reported in the West Fire Region over the long weekend.

There are three active fires, but they are not posing any problems.
