VANCOUVER – There are about 155 fires burning across B.C. and many communities are under evacuation alerts and orders due to the intense fire activity.

There were 36 new fires sparked on Thursday alone.

In Prince George Friday morning the smoke was so thick from nearby fires that the street lamps had to be lit again. The smoke is from the Chelaslie Fire near Tetachuk Lake, which was very active on Thursday and residents of Prince George were seeing those effects a day later. The smoke was mixed in with a rain system, bringing the first serious rain to the area for a couple of weeks.
