No incidents of note in the Merritt Fire Zone over the long weekend.
Kamloops Fire Centre information officer Marla Catherall says they received no reports of wildfires, nor did they receive word of any abandoned campfires.
"I guess you could say at least for one weekend people got the message. So, we are thanking people that were out in the backcountry for being responsible with their campfires, cigarette butts, and off-road vehicles."
The news isn't all good though as Catherill confirms The Fire Danger Rating in the Merritt Fire Zone has been upgraded to HIGH.
BC River Forecast Centre not expecting the Coldwater River to rise much further.
Director Dave Campbell says the river that runs through Merritt is still vulnerable to precipitation, but for the most part the snowpack that feeds into it has melted.
"We really have seen the snowpack diminish in the past week. And, we're not anticipating any significant rises because of the heat this week, because of that depleted snowpack."
The Coldwater River is unregulated, and for that reason Campbell says they have been keeping close tabs on it in recent weeks.
Suit filed against Alberta's new law allowing gas supply to BC to be cut off.
In announcing the latest move today, Attorney General David Eby says it's possible there could be more.
"We're prepared to file an injunction to stop Alberta from using this unconstitutional law if we need to do that. And the government is looking for alternate sources of refined products to ensure that harm to British Columbia is minimized if Alberta attempts to use this and we are unsuccessful with an injunction application."
Eby says details on that contingency plan will stay under wraps until, and unless they need to put it into action.
The Alberta bill passed last week, that claims BC is responsible for delays for the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline, is on that province's books but requires additional steps to enact.
