The Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations, and Rural Development will be burning 150 piles of woody debris and log decks at the sites of some of the wildfires in the Chilcotin.
These piles are within the perimeters of the Big Stick Lake wildfire, Hotnarko Creek wildfire, Anahim Peak wildfire, and the Eliguk Lake wildfire. Burning these piles is expected to help reduce fuel hazards created from the construction of control lines during fire suppression activities.
Some smoke may be visible from Highway 20, and areas around Anahim Lake, Nimpo Lake, and Tatla Lake.
Burning is expected to start on October 1st and continue periodically until mid-December when conditions are favourable.
