Prescribed burn planned near Christina Lake

Interfor will begin a controlled burn this week covering up to 44 hectares in the Sutherland Creek area, 10 kilometres east of Christina Lake.

The BC Wildfire Service says smoke may impact residents down valley of the burn and may be visible from Christina Lake and surrounding areas, and to motorists on Highway 3.

The exact timing of this burn will depend on weather and site conditions, but it could begin as early as Thursday.

Burning will only proceed if conditions are suitable and allow for good smoke dispersal during operations. However, smoke may linger onsite for several days following the burn while crews conduct mop-up and patrol.
