Those making travel plans across Northern British Columbia will want to keep an eye on the BC Wildfire Service information streams, as fires dot the map in a number of locations with four of note listed in the Northwest region heading into the weekend.

The four include the Chief Louis Lake Fire which is the largest,  as well as the Camsell Lake Fire, Poplar Mountain Fire and the Bulkley Lake Fire which appears to be the one closest to the Highway 16 travel corridor

Notes on the two most significant of the fires can be reviewed below:
