Any members of the public currently using recreation sites are being advised to leave.

“Recreationalists are encouraged to avoid travelling in the backcountry in areas of active wildfires or where the fire danger rating is high to extreme,” the news release reads.

“Given the current fire danger ratings and number of active wildfires, further restrictions may be considered if people do not stay out of the backcountry.”
