The following was posted on the Otter Point Volunteer Fire Department’s Facebook page.
As of 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, the Sooke Municipal sign was still showing Extreme.
The rain and the cooler weather have brought the Fire Hazard Rating down. Campfires and industrial high risk activities will once again be allowed in Otter Point. Please use extreme caution with your campfires and make sure they are completely out when you are finished with them. The rains have not penetrated very far into the ground and a few days of dry warm weather will put us back up to extreme. Enjoy the long weekend and play safe!!
