Grande Prairie Forest Area in “moderate” wildfire danger: Alberta Wildfire

Alberta Wildfire has issued an update for the Grande Prairie Forest Area, announcing the change in wildfire danger to “moderate.”

Residents are reminded to check for holdover fires from the winter, spread out any remaining ashes to probe for hot spots, feel for heat over ash piles, and drench any remaining hotspots with water and stir ashes.

According to Alberta Wildfire, 19 wildfires have been reported in the Grande Prairie Forest Area since the beginning of the year, 15 of which have been extinguished and two are listed as “under control.”

Among the carryovers, Alberta Wildfire says the sites of some 2023 carryover flames were scanned over the past week by aircraft, and while some fires still show heat, three of them have been listed as extinguished.

Fire restrictions still remain in the northern parts of the Grande Prairie Forest Area, and a fire advisory has been issued for much of the south parts of the region due to dry fuel and gusty wind.
