Today's wildfire danger in the forest area is mixed with Fort Chipewyan/Fort Smith being High and Fort McMurray High to Extreme. Yesterday's localized thunderstorm activity gave some temporary relief to dry grass where precipitation was received. Areas that did not receive the rain will still exhibit extreme fire behaviour. A Fire Ban and OHV Restriction is in place for the entire forest area.
WILDFIRE SITUATION May 26, 2018
Make sure it's out! A campfire left smoldering can cause a wildfire. Never leave your campfire unattended and make sure it's out. Soak it with water, stir up the ashes and soak it again. A campfire is out when the ashes are cool to the touch.
If you spot a wildfire, call 310-FIRE!
