  • The northern half of the fire, which includes the Falkland and Cedar Hill areas, saw approximately 12 millilitres of rainfall.
  • BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) is reporting that this rainfall, combined with forecasted temperature in the low-to-mid-20 degree C range, will diminish the fire burning behaviour for the next seven to 10 days.
  • BCWS reports this will give crews a window to increase fire containment and suppression efforts.
  • At this time, there have been no changes made to any Evacuation Orders or Alerts in the CSRD area.
