Taylor Flats is a popular campground and recreational area.

The fire danger is Extreme for our area and we have had months of drought now. Not a big surprise to see fires start, and grow, quickly.

Stay safe out there. If you have any more information please send it along to Alberniweather at gmail.com , or @alberniweather on Twitter or leave a comment.
