The wildfire danger rating in the Lac La Biche Forest Area is LOW.
Thanks to your essential diligence, effective preparations of Alberta Wildfire, as well as the recent precipitation in many areas of the province, we are lifting the fire advisory in the Forest Protection Area, effective July 14.
Almost daily precipitation is helping to keep the wildfire danger level at LOW. Please remember that despite damp conditions, you still need a permit for any burning other than a campfire.
We have not had any new wildfires so far today.
We have had 86 wildfires this season in the Lac La Biche forest area.

If you choose to drive an off-highway vehicle in Alberta’s forested areas please remember:
- OHV exhausts can get very hot, reaching temperatures of over 200 Celsius, causing debris caught near the exhaust to become superheated. This debris can potentially start a wildfire when it falls to the ground.
- It is crucial for Albertans to stop and check OHVs and the ground for any debris that may have fallen.
- Before you ride, clean any debris that has built up near the exhaust and muffler, under the seat, in wheel wells and around the engine.
- Always carry a small fire extinguisher, a collapsible shovel and water. These tools can help extinguish a wildfire and safely dispose of hot debris.
Sometimes you just need to stop and smell the wildflowers.
Thanks for doing your part to prevent wildfire. Your next update will be on July 22 unless conditions change.
