Intermittent rain combined with cooler temperatures is tempering fire danger in the Grande Prairie Wildfire Management Area.
While the risk of starting a wildfire maybe low, holdover fires can happen. This type of fire can burn undetected. As snow melts and dry fuels are abundant, a little windy weather can set a blaze early in the wildfire season.
