As of 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 21, a fire advisory is now in effect. We have had a couple of days of very high fire weather. With so many lightning-caused fires occurring in such a short period of time in the North West Boreal region of Canada, it is important to limit human-caused wildfires. Please continue to use caution when in the forested areas, and always extinguish your fire. To report wildfires call, 310-FIRE(3473).
