At least 50 new wildfires spring to life in BC, Canada

Wild Fire Alert

“Hot and dry conditions are expected to continue for at least the next five days. We have instability in the forecast and strong winds across the province as well as more dry lightning.”

That dry lightning moved across the province swiftly last night, causing 50 brand new wildfires to bring the total to 194.

While none of the fires are close enough to issue any evacuation notices, Navi Saini with the Wildfire Management Branch says crews are on standby with more instability in the forecast.

“We are keeping a close eye on those conditions and we are allocating resources strategically across the province based on those wildfire starts.”

With the battle against the blazes hinging largely on how severe tonight’s round of dry lightning is, firefighters and extra resources are on hand and on standby should the wildfire situation escalate out of control.

Most of the wildfires are burning across the Prince George, Kamloops, and southeast regions of the province.
