With a cold front expected to bring high winds this weekend, the province has again extended the state of emergency to September first.
Chris Duffy with Emergency Management BC, says this will allow the province to continue with their coordinated fire suppression efforts.
The state of emergency allows for RCMP, EMBC and other organizations to take whatever action is needed to help with wildfire suppression.
This is the third time the state of emergency has been extended, with previous extensions on July 19 and Aug. 4.
This has been the worst wildfire season in recorded history with over 900,000 hectares burnt, which is around 50,000 more hectares than the previous worst year in 1958.
There are currently 25 evacuation orders in affect and 41 evacuation alerts. For the most up-to-date information visit BCwildfire.ca.
