FORT NELSON, B.C. – The B.C. Wildfire Service is advising the public of a planned burn near the Northern Rockies Regional Airport.
According to an information bulletin, the Wildfire Service and Northern Rockies Regional Municipality will be burning about 40 piles of wood debris near the Airport sometime between October 14 and October 16, 2020, depending on site and weather conditions.
The airport is located about four kilometres northeast of Fort Nelson and smoke may be visible from Fort Nelson and surrounding areas.
The Wildfire Service says the wood debris is the result of a previous project that improved clearance for incoming and departing aircraft. Burning this material will help decrease the risk of future wildfires in the area by reducing accumulations of surface fuels.
Wildfire Service personnel will be on-site to control and monitor these fires.
