A fire advisory is now in place for the Peace River Forest Area, thanks to the recent hot and dry conditions.
Fire permits are still in effect, but restrictions may be implemented if the hazard continues to increase, and new requests will now be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Residents are asked to take extra care with any outdoor burning, including campfires.
Be sure to use the soak, stir and soak again practice until the fire is completely extinguished.
The advisory will remain in effect until conditions improve.
