A wildfire on a ridge above Sicamous is now fully extinguished.

While all is quiet on the wildfire front, forest protection officer Larry Osachoff says a week of hot weather could breathe life into holdover lightning strikes.

Only small campfires are currently permitted. Some industry burning at high elevations may be permitted beginning Sept. 15.
