Smoke from controlled burn

Residents along the Ashcroft Reserve should expect to see smoke over the next few days.

BC Wildfire Service crews are conducting controlled burnoff operations.

The goal is to slow the growth and spread of the fire and to set up a safe area where crews can work.

Large smoke columns may be visible over the next several days. Burnoff operations will  bring in aircraft support.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the Ashcroft Reserve fire covered about 10,600 hectares.

There are 190 firefighters on site along with eight pieces of heavy equipment, air support, an Incident Management Team and additional support staff.

The public is reminded that the Ashcroft Reserve fire is still classified as "out of control".
