Fire danger rising in northwest

The fire danger is rising due to all the recent hot weather with many areas in the northwest already at the high and extreme danger levels.

According to the Northwest Fire Centre website, Terrace is listed as high danger as of the last actual rating July 19, and forecast to remain high through the weekend.

The ratings are taken from weather stations in each particular area.

Rosswood, also listed at high danger currently, is forecast to become extreme by Saturday.

Cedarvale is an extreme danger with that not expected to change through the weekend.

Dease Lake is at low danger and forecast to become moderate and then high into the weekend.

Nass Camp, currently at a moderate fire danger, is expected to climb to high danger tomorrow, July 11.

Iskut and Telegraph Creek are both at a high danger and expected to stay that way through the weekend.

No fire restrictions have been posted by the Northwest Fire Centre.
