“Winds were light allowing crews to make some progress,” he posted on his Facebook page. “Burn offs were successfully carried out on some of the fires giving us a chance to get some containment.

“With no rain in the forecast for the Cariboo we still have a volatile situation. Hopefully the winds will continue to cooperate.

“Crews from out of province continue to arrive providing some relief for our firefighters. Crews are working around the clock on many of the fires trying to make progress.
