Smoke, not fires

Fire information officer Jenny Fremlin says there are no known fires of note within the Cariboo Fire Centre region

The smoky haze noticeable in the South Cariboo is likely drifting in from elsewhere.

Fire information officer Jenny Fremlin says there are no known fires of note within the Cariboo Fire Centre region that could be contributing to this smoke.

The haze may be coming from as far away as Russia, she explains.
