Smoke from pile burning may be visible in the Canim Lake, Deka Lake and Drewry Lake areas

100 Mile House – The Ministry of Forests will be burning approximately 50 piles of woody debris and log decks at multiple sites within the vicinity of the Canim Lake wildfire (C41100), Howard Lake wildfire (C41146), North Deka Lake wildfire (C41515), Dombey East wildfire (C41143), Duckling Lake wildfire (C41145), Drewry Southeast wildfire (C41119), Succour Lake wildfire (C41191) and Drewry South wildfire (C41310).

These activities are being taken to help reduce fuel hazards created from the construction of control lines during fire suppression activities.

Smoke may be visible from the Canim Hendrix Road, Horse Lake Road, Mahood Lake Road, Highway 24, and areas around Canim Lake, Forest Grove, and Interlakes.

Burning is expected to begin November 20th, 2023 and will continue periodically until February 29th, 2024. It will occur only on days when site and weather conditions are favourable and will allow smoke to dissipate. These controlled burns will be conducted by Ministry staff or local contract crews.
