BC Wildfire Service in partnership with Tsilhqot’in communities plans to continue a series of prescribed burns along the Highway 20 right-of-way.
It’s a continuation of the prescribed burns that occurred in the spring of this year along Highway 20.
BC Wildfire Service said burning may begin as early as tomorrow (October 12) and continue periodically until November 30th.
Over the next several weeks’ firefighters will burn in sections along the right-of-way from the Hanceville Lookout, westward to the western boundary of Bull Canyon Park.
Smoke and flames may be visible from Yunesit’in, Alexis Creek, Highway 20, and surrounding areas.
BC Wildfire Service staff and Tsilhqot’in fire crews will carefully prepare, control, and monitor the fires at all times.
Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, BC Parks, Cariboo-Chilcotin Natural Resource District, and BC Hydro are also involved with this prescribed burn.
