Extreme Fire Danger Rating Reached

Post Date:07/26/2018 2:15 PM

Whitehorse – Citizens are advised that the fire danger rating has reached its highest point of Red (extreme) in the Whitehorse area.

The Whitehorse Fire Department and Yukon Wildland Management are asking people to make sure they fully put out their campfires before leaving them, to never leave a fire unattended, and to take extra caution when using motorized vehicles in the back country due to dry tinder.

If you suspect a wildland fire in your area call 911.
