Weekend Wildfires Extinguished by Cranbrook Firefighters

The Cranbrook Fire Department responded to two small wildfires near city boundaries over the weekend, with the assistance of Cranbrook RCMP and the BC Wildfire Service.

According to Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services, the first wildfire was reported north of town by Cranbrook RCMP on Saturday morning. The BC Wildfire Service reported that wildfire as being 0.1 hectares in size at the end of Hoffman Road, across Highway 95A from Mission Hills Golf Course. Emergency crews fully extinguished the fire.

Later Saturday afternoon, the Cranbrook Fire Department was yet again called out to another reported wildfire.

At this time, it is unclear exactly where the second wildfire was reported or how large an area was affected.

Cranbrook Fire and Emergency Services are reminding the public to be vigilant with all campfires, especially as the BC Wildfire Service has since implemented a Category 2 open burning ban across the Southeast Fire Centre.
