The Township of Spallumcheen EOC remains active. Due to the tremendous efforts of the fire crews onsite today the status of the fire has changed and is now considered Being Held. The Evacuation Alerts will remain in place throughout the night due to the possibility of high winds and further thunderstorms.

Local crews and BC Wildfire personnel remain onsite and the terrain continues to be a challenge for fire crews. Crews have taken an aggressive approach with this fire and dealing with hot spots as they occur which has seen positive effects in containing the spread. Today’s efforts centred around the back breaking work of creating fuel free zones with upwards of 20 personnel on site. The trails on Mount Rose Swanson remain closed. Please avoid these back country areas.

Communications will continue to be provided on the Township’s website at www.spallumcheentwp.bc.ca under News and Events. The next communication will be provided at 10 am on Sunday July 9, 2023 or as new information becomes available.
