BC Wildfire Preparing for Scheduled Burns Near Mable Creek & Woodward Fires

Posted Tuesday, August 28, 2018

The Regional District of North Okanagan is notifying all residents of scheduled burns to be conducted by BC Wildfire on Tuesday/Wednesday this week, subject to weather conditions.

Controlled burns will take place on both the current Mable Lake Creek and Woodward fires. Residents should not be alarmed if they see additional smoke arising from these sites. The intention of the scheduled burns is to reduce fire fuels between the active fire and the guards so there is no longer a path for the flames to follow.
