BURNS LAKE, BC — The BC Wildfire Service will be undertaking a pile burning activity in the Burns Lake Community Forest this week to reduce forest fuels and help increase the success rate of the prescribed fire planned for this year. …The prescribed burning is part of BL Comfor’s Landscape Management Plan prepared by B.A. Blackwell & Associates. …Using prescribed fire in these areas will remove waste wood left behind after timber harvesting and reduce accumulations of forest fuels. In the event of a wildfire, this will result in less intense fire behaviour and make it easier and safer for firefighters to suppress the wildfire. Additionally, these burns are expected to improve access for tree planters; and would also provide training opportunities for the planning and implementation of future prescribed fires and wildfire risk reduction projects.
