“The fire danger rating is currently low to moderate thoughout the Cariboo Fire Centre with the exception of pockets of high fire danger rating in the Alexis Creek and Riske Creek areas. A map of the current fire danger rating as well as information on current wild fire activity and open fire restrictions across the Province can be found at bc wild fire dot ca”.
