Fire Advisory issued for Grande Prairie area

Alberta Environment and Sustainable Resource Development has issued a Fire Advisory for the Grande Prairie Wildfire management area.

Dry grass and other fire fuels, brought on by a lack of precipitation, are the reasons behind the advisory.

No new fire permits for heavy fuels and machine-piled brush piles are being issued, while essential burning permits are now restricted to a maximum 5 day allowance.

There are currently two active wildfires in the region – one is under control while the other has been turned over to the responsible party.
