200 wood piles to be burned in Central Okanagan provincial park – Okanagan

With winter nearly over and wildfire season approaching, 200 timber piles will be set on fire in Central Okanagan State Park this month.

Burning at Myra Bellevue Provincial Park in Kelowna could begin as early as March 13, with smoke and flames likely to be visible in the surrounding areas, according to the BC Wildfire Service.

This incineration is part of an ongoing forest fuel management project in the region to reduce surface fuel.

“BC Wildfire Service staff carefully prepare, control and monitor these fires,” BCWS said, adding that burning will only occur when conditions are right.

BCWS said on Friday that several scheduled burns will take place near Lytton between March 10th and April 11th.
