Skeena Firezone fire risk warning

The Wildfire Management Branch is urging the public in Terrace, Kitimat and surrounding areas to use caution due to a high fire rating.

Since the beginning of May, all six wildfires in the Skeena Fire Zone, which encompasses Terrace, Kitimat, the Nass Valley and surrounding areas, have been human-caused.

The fire danger rating in the Skeena Fire Zone currently ranges from moderate to extreme.

A fire danger rating of high or extreme indicates the forest is very dry and the fire risk is serious.

New wildfires will start easily, and spread rapidly.

The Wildfire Management Branch reminds people that large party fires can easily get out of control and a person present may be held  liable for wildfire suppression costs.

They also ask people riding ATVs or dirt bikes to check the condition of the muffler, stay on dirt paths and avoid tall grasses and weeds, and an approved spark arrester should be used on the exhaust system.
