Fire crews across much of Canada are already on high alert for the coming wildfire season, only months after the conclusion of the worst season on record.

Quebec’s fire monitoring agency, SOPFEU, issued a warning for some parts of the province last week, the earliest in its history.

“It’s going to get dry very quickly, so it’s going to become very, very easy to start a fire,” said Philippe Bergeron, a spokesperson for the agency based in Quebec City.

“We have an early spring that is coming, a mild end of this winter and the snow cover that is disappearing faster than usual.”

Alberta also declared last month that its wildfire season had started, 10 days early, and B.C. issued a notice saying it was monitoring holdover fires from last year.

The B.C. Wildfire Service has since announced a number of prescribed burns, in an attempt to reduce dried vegetation and protect communities against wildfires.
