Av­er­age wild­fire fore­cast: Nat­u­ral Re­sources Canada

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

Nat­u­ral Re­sources Canada is fore­cast­ing an av­er­age wild­fire sea­son for much of the coun­try this year. Re­searchers say dry con­di­tions and low pre­cip­i­ta­tion in areas of Al­berta, Bri­tish Columbia, south­ern Yukon and the North­west Ter­ri­to­ries may cause a grad­ual in­crease in fire threat in the com­ing weeks. The dan­ger for these areas is ex­pected to peak in June and ta­per off later in the sum­mer. The Cana­dian For­est Ser­vice warns there have been sig­nif­i­cant fires in the past un­der av­er­age con­di­tions.
