Monday, May 29, 2023 – The Fire Danger Rating is now HIGH for the District of Sooke. Forest fuels are dry and fire risks are serious. Fires may start easily, burn quickly, and challenge fire suppression efforts.
Campfires are still permitted, but keep your campfire small, and always have a water source present. Never leave a campfire unattended. Before you leave the area, your campfire MUST be fully extinguished. The ashes of your fire must be cool to the touch.
