All open burning, except for campfires, will be prohibited because of hot and dry weather conditions this weekend.  The fire danger rating in the Prince George Fire Centre region is high to extreme.  Other centres, including the Cariboo, Kamloops, and Coastal Fire Centres have similar bans.  If you do see a wildfire, call *5555 or 1-800-663-5555.
