Wood Debris Burning near Smithers

Kathy Brookes

People in the Smithers area can expect to see smoke from the burning of wood debris piles nearby over the next month and a half.

The B.C. Wildfire Service says it's working with B.C. Parks to burn debris in Call Lake Provincial Park, southeast of Smithers, between now and the end of May. 

It's part of a FireSmart project to reduce wildfire risks in the area. The debris is the result of forest thinning and pruning done last year. 
Call Lake Park is just five kilometres outside Smithers.

Signs will be posted to let park users know when crews are working there -- and some trails may occassionally be closed.
