Vancouver Island may have seen a fair bit of rain over the weekend, but that still won’t change entire weeks-worth of dry weather, says Sooke Fire Chief Steven Sorensen.

That means the extreme fire risk remains in effect.

Sorensen said a Sooke resident was recently ticketed for having an open fire “because the rain was coming,” so the public is encouraged to remain vigilant until any official changes on the fire ban is announced.
