A fire advisory has been issued for the Grande Prairie Forest Area. Wildfire information officer Melinda Paplawski says grassy areas are drying out, and more warm temperatures are in the forecast, along with strong winds.
Existing fire permits are still valid, but could be suspended if conditions get worse. People with permits should check the wind speeds allowed and be prepared to put of their fire if it gets windier. Small campfires are still allowed at this time.
So far this season there have been seven wildfires in the Grande Prairie area that have burned 2.25 hectares. All have since been put out.
The fire advisory will stay in place until conditions improve. The weather forecast is calling for rain Friday and Saturday.
