A fire estimated at 0.2 hectares is burning about 15 kilometres northwest of Terrace near the Kalum Forest Service Road.

 

The other is near Moraine Creek, southeast of Terrace, and is estimated at about 0.1 hectares in size.

 

Both fires are listed as under control. 
 
The weekend rain reduced the fire hazard rating to between Low and Very Low in the western part of the region.

 

It's still Moderate-to-High for much of the Bulkley Valley and Lakes District.
