PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The BC Wildfire Service will be doing planned ignitions on the Tentfire Creek wildfire on Friday, July 30th.
The ignitions will be done to remove any unburned fuel in the fire’s path, helping to limit the potential for any spread.
The ignition area is approximately 650 hectares, spanning around 4 kilometres to the west from 8.5 kilometres on the Mast Road.
These planned ignitions are scheduled for July 30th, but according to a release from the BCWS, the timing is all depending on weather and site conditions.
The BCWS says the smoke will be visible from Tumbler Ridge, Mast Road, and the Murray FSR.
BCWS will be working with the Tumbler Ridge Fire Department and local RCMP to complete the burn with minimal impact to the community.
The Tentfire Creek wildfire has burned around 2,400 hectares since being discovered on June 30th, 2021.
