Cooler Weather, Rain assisting Northwest Firefighters this week

While many of us may be grumbling a bit about summer's sudden interruption, the cooler temperatures and precipitation have been quite beneficial for those on the fire lines around Northwest British Columbia this week.

Four fires in the Cassiar Fire Zone around Telegraph Creek have all bee deemed to be either under control or being monitored with no indications that they pose any problems for communities in the area.

Another fire west of Atlin in the far northwest corner of the province has also provided for some positive news, with an evacuation order for Southwest Tagish Lake now rescinded.

You can review the details from all of the updates here.

The Weather Gods will continue to provide for their assistance for the remainder of the week, with more of the same wet weather of recent days set to carry forward through to the weekend.
