Windy Conditions Prompt Call for Caution in Cariboo

Friday, August 28, 2015 @ 3:58 AM

Williams Lake, B.C.-  Those planning to  spend the last weekend of August in the Cariboo are being called upon to be extra careful  in the  back country. 

While the forecast calls for cooler temperatures and some showers in some areas of the Cariboo Fire Centre, much of the  area remains  very dry and high winds are expected throughout the region.

The fire danger rating in many areas of the Cariboo, including the Chilcotin and South Cariboo  ranges from high to extreme.

In dry and windy conditions, forests and grasslands are very susceptible to wildfires.


Harper must be in the area.
