Wildfire danger in forest area now very high

The wildfire danger level in the Grande Prairie Forest Area is now sitting at very high.

Alberta Wildfire says the weather outlook for the next couple of days will cause crossover conditions in the Forest Area. This happens when temperature and humidity cross paths causing very dry air. A fire started in these conditions will spread quickly and become difficult to control.

Fire bans are still in place for both the City and the County of Grande Prairie as well as the towns of Beaverlodge, Sexsmith and Wembley and the Village of Hythe. A fire ban, along with an off-road vehicle ban is also still in effect for the forest area.
