BC Wildfire Services warns campers to be careful during the long weekend

The BC Wildfire Service is urging people in the northern part of the province to be very cautious with any campfires and outdoor burning this long weekend.

Authorities say the forecast calls for a warming, drying trend and above-seasonal temperatures in northern areas and anyone wishing to light an open fire must follow all burning regulations to help reduce the number of preventable wildfires.

They say this is particularly important from Tweedsmuir Park to the Yukon border, since the fire danger rating in parts of the Northwest Fire Centre is expected to be “high” over the weekend.

If a fire escapes, officials say the person responsible may be fined up to $100,000 and held liable for fire suppression costs and damages
