Controlled Burning in Scenic Canyon Regional Park
April 05, 2014 - 9:33 AM
The Regional District of Central Okanagan advises that controlled burning is underway today (Saturday, April 5th) in an approximately 20-hectare area of Scenic Canyon Regional Park.
With good air quality and venting conditions open burning is allowed today for those eligible Central Okanagan property owners with permits from their local fire authority.
All local fire departments and local media have been advised of today’s activity and will be notified when further burning takes place.
Additional controlled burns will likely be required to dispose of the fire hazard debris that’s being collected in this fuel modification project and another that is also reducing the fire hazard in a nine hectare section of Coldham Regional Park.
