PRINCE GEORGE, BC: There hasn’t been much change on the wildfires in the Cariboo along with Highway conditions today…
We can tell you that Williams Lake remains on Evacuation Alert, the fire there hasn’t changed. While the forecast is calling for some showers on Wednesday, thunderstorms are also a threat with dry lightning. The same forecast is for the Prince George region tomorrow.
The two fires burning in the Quesnel region…
The Green Mountain fire is 60 per cent contained. Crews continue to make progress on this fire located south of Quesnel. The West Fraser Road Complex fire is still burning and it currently doesn’t have a size. It is located 25 km south of Quesnel. Both of these fires are interface fires.
Highway closures remain the same. Below are the details…
Now there are five notable fires around the Prince George Fire Centre with all but one an interface fire, meaning structures are at risk.
You can find those fires here. Click on each fire under the PG Fire Centre to learn more. The largest fire is burning at Fort Fraser, approximately 135 kilometres west of Prince George. It is 0 per cent contained, out of control, but is not an interface fire.
This is all for today.
