B.C. fire bans extended

The beautiful end to B.C.'s summer has prompted yet another fire ban, which now means no burning in most of the province.

The beautiful end to B.C.'s summer has prompted yet another fire ban, which now means no burning in most of the province.

Fire information officer Lindsay Carnes said conditions are so warm and dry that minor smouldering from lightning strikes over a month ago have grown into fires.

The latest ban starts today and includes the forest districts of Mackenzie, Fort St. John, Fort St.

James, Dawson Creek and Vanderhoof.

The latest bans, in addition to other fire bans issued earlier, means most of the province is covered.
