Mount Revelstoke Burn Piles Set For Thursday And Friday

Brush pile burns are planned for Mount Revelstoke National Park today and tomorrow.

Parks Spokesperson Shelley Bird says that this cool weather gives crews a window to burn "We have good conditions to get a little bit more brush pile burning done on the lower slopes of Mount Revelstoke. We have been working on brushing and clearing a fire guard along the base of the mountain between Mount Revelstoke National Park and the City."

Bird says you shouldn't worry about any smoke from the area "We've got fire crews available and good weather conditions so you might see a bit of smoke along the base of Mount Revelstoke."
