Fire rating expected to rise

8/3/2012

The fire danger in the Okanagan is rated as moderate but that is expected to change this weekend with hot, dry weather in the forecast.

Fire Information Officer Kayla Pepper says the public should keep their eyes open for fire activity.

"We are still seeing some hold over lightning fires starting in the Okanagan area, so if you do see a plume of smoke or a unattended camp fire make sure you call 1-800-663-5555."
      
Pepper says while their isn't a fire ban in effect for the Okanagan, that could change with more hot weather over the next couple of days.
