CENTRAL OKANAGAN - The Regional District of Central Okanagan advises that controlled burns are underway today (Thursday, March 27 2014) in Scenic Canyon Regional Park.
This is to dispose of fire hazard debris collected as part of large fuel modification project underway within a 21-hectare section of Scenic Canyon Regional Park.
With appropriate Open burning permits for fire fuel hazard reduction and a custom venting forecast from the BC Wildfire Management Branch which predicts good venting conditions at the sites, piles of pine beetle infested and other fire hazard wood debris are being burned today in this regional park even though open burning is not allowed today in the Central Okanagan.
All local fire departments have been advised of today’s activity in the park and will be notified when further burning takes place.
