Dry conditions and fires in NB
« on: June 21, 2020, 10:18:44 AM »
Recently, I believe there was a 2000 acre fire in Blackville area, currently being patrolled for flare ups. There are 5 others being patrolled.

No burning allowed at this time, province wide.

Public woodlands are totally closed here, can't even run thinning lines.

A lot cooler today, but no rain. Dry as a bone even with some thunder showers last night. They didn't amount to anything significant.

Natural Resources and Energy Development
Crown land closed due to extreme fire hazard
19 June 2020
FREDERICTON (GNB) – The Department of Natural Resources and Energy Development has closed all Crown land to industrial and recreational activities immediately due to extremely dry conditions across New Brunswick.
“The fire hazard in our province is extreme,” said Natural Resources and Energy Development Minister Mike Holland. “The hazard levels in some regions of the province are the highest we have ever seen.”
“Our forests are tinder dry and right now even the smallest spark could ignite a major wildfire that could threaten people's homes and destroy wildlife habitat,” said Holland. “Even the heat coming off the bottom of a vehicle while you are driving through the woods could ignite a blade of grass.”
The public is also strongly encouraged to stay out of the woods on private land as well.

Sorry to hear of that, it might be because we got between 5" and 10" of rain down this way over the past week....

Restrictions have been lifted today as we have had a few showers and it is cooler. We really have not had much rain though. They also said that fireworks are not allowed at this time because the woods are still dry.

Nothing burning here for a change. I saw a small fire reported down the valley but it didn't last long, no dry fuel.

We haven't had a lot of rain, but some significant showers. It's still terrible dry if you was to dig down 4 inches. But thankfully, I won't need to water this weekend. Suppose to be some more showers through the weekend and Monday. I haven't seen a full day of rain since just after the last snow storm in May.
Move'n on.
