To help reduce wildfire threats, the BC Wildfire Service will be supporting the City of Kimberley in conducting a prescribed burn in the Forest Crowne area covering up to 14-hectares. Weather dependent, the burn should begin Wednesday, May 4th, 2022.

The prescribed burn is located within the limits of the City of Kimberley. Smoke may impact the residents close to the burn area and will be highly visible from Kimberley, Marysville, and surrounding areas. Smoke will also be visible to motorists travelling along Highway 95A and Highway 3.

Burning will proceed only if conditions are suitable and allow for smoke dispersal during burn operations. Light smoke may also linger in the following days. Thank you for your patience as fire crews complete this important work.
