National Fire Situation Report

Aug 2, 2021 3:03pm, CT
Level 5
National mobilization is heavily committed and increased measures need to be taken to support agencies. Active agencies may take emergency measures to sustain incident operations. Inactive/low activity agencies are at drawdown levels.
  • Full commitment of national resources is ongoing.
  • Demand for interagency resources through CIFFC is extreme.
  • National availability of resources is limited, international resources are being mobilized.
  • Potential for emerging significant wildland fires is high to extreme and expected to remain so in one or multiple agencies.
Canadian Wildland Fire Information System
AgencyOperational Summary
BCThe axis/trough of moisture and instability – northwest to southeast across the interior rotates around the huge cold low in the Gulf.
Lightning is firing along the northern half of this axis and should continue all day with the rotation northward. There may be some dry lightning in the northeast Cariboo into the Prince George fire zone. Some lightning may occur along and behind the tail end of axis/trough in the south. Local rainfalls of 10-15 mm will accompany the convection in the Mackenzie fire zone. The coast and western interior turn dry and the smoke will clear from the south coast as the upper flow turns southwest.
YTGroup 2 (802's) are back from BC deployment. Rain forecst across southern Territory but dry to the north. Flooding continues to draw resources.
PCSignificant growth on fires in Nahani NP in the last 48hrs but no concerns.
For current year from January 1.
