The Township is happy to report that there is no changes from yesterday to the Horseshoe Lake Wildfire K41194, which is still considered “under control”. Crews from the local fire department and BC Wildfire remain on scene throughout the day to work on any hot spots as they occur. The Emergency Operations Centre (EOC) remains active.

As you know the terrain has been a challenge throughout firefighting efforts and the supports the Township has received by BC Wildfire and surrounding departments has been huge in our ability to get the fire to a “contained” status. Crews on site have been truly exceptional working long hours in difficult terrain and undertaking extreme physical labour in the heat.  A huge thank you to the BC Wildfire teams for their assistance during this time.

AS noted on Sunday, July 9, 2023 the Mount Rose Swanson Hiking trail is open.

The next scheduled update will be 10:00 am on Thursday, July 13, 2023.  If anything changes the Township will update our website at www.spallumcheentwp.bc.ca
