Lightning strikes and wildfires did not materialize as feared after severe thunderstorms swept through the region on Saturday.
Neither did the rain that might have dampened bone-dry conditions.
"There's nothing going on right now in this part of the province," fire information officer Kayla Pepper said on Sunday. "For the most part, there are no fires of note."
That's not the case south of B.C., where wildfires are raging in Washington state, Idaho and Montana. Last week, another contingent of B.C. firefighters was sent to those states.
Although it's not out of the woods yet, B.C. has somehow managed to avoid an intense fire season despite drought conditions reminiscent of the infamous 2003 wildfire season.
Saturday's storms did bring some precipitation, but it mostly fell on higher elevations, leaving valley bottoms dry and vulnerable to ignition.
The sole incident of note on Sunday was a campfire left burning east of Kamloops, a chance to remind the public that a ban remains in place. Only in the Clearwater Forest District, north of Little Fort, are campfires permitted.
"We're not seeing the precipitation in the valley bottom," Pepper said. "We'll keep that (ban) in place, obviously, as long as we think that the risk is there."
