Sunday, July 9, 2017 @ 7:00 AM

Prince George BC -In an effort to protect public safety, BC Parks, in co-ordination with the BC Wildfire Service, will close Wells Gray Provincial Park effective 8 a.m. this morning

The closure will remain in effect until further notice.

BC Wildfire Service resources are actively engaged on multiple interface fires throughout the province and, to ensure the safety of the public, this closure is necessary.

Wells Gray Provincial Park is accessible by only one road, which would make an evacuation of the area difficult if it were needed. This proactive measure will enable a safe and orderly exit of the public from the area.

No public access to Wells Gray Provincial Park will be allowed after 8 this morning

Anyone currently in Wells Gray Provincial Park is required to leave the area. BC Parks personnel will be available to assist the public as they depart.

At this time BC Wildfire Service is not aware of any wildfires that are an immediate risk to Wells Gray Park.
