Cooler weather helps firefighting efforts

Since April 1, 2023, 1,754 wildfires have burned about 1.58 million hectares of land in B.C. There are currently 397 active fires burning across the province.

Cooler weather and precipitation continue to dampen fire activity in many regions of the province today. The prevailing pattern is expected to continue until the weekend when an offshore ridge will build towards the coast bringing higher temperatures to the Interior and coastal regions.

There are number of evacuation orders and alerts in response to wildfires in B.C. For a summary of active wildfire evacuation notices, please visit EmergencyInfoBC.
