Access restrictions south of Vanderhoof lifted

Due to the decreased fire activity and recent progress made by firefighting crews, the BC Wildfire Service has rescinded the order to restrict access that was implemented on Aug. 5, 2017, for the fires south of Vanderhoof.

That order is no longer in place, effective at noon on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2017. Members of the public may once again use the areas around:

  • all roads accessed by the Kluskus Lavoie Forest Service Road (Gold Road) beyond the 13-kilometre mark;
  • all roads accessed by the Kluskus Forest Service Road beyond the 77-kilometre mark; and
  • all roads accessed by the Kluskus 500 Road beyond the 28-kilometre mark (528 sign) just west of the Kenny Dam.

A map of the area is available online at: http://ow.ly/wZ0q30ebUg3
