BC Wildfire Updates
White Rock Lake
This fire is currently 83342.0 hectares. This will be the final update on Wildfires of Note for the White Rock Lake wildfire. No further updates will be posted on this website as it is no longer considered to be a Wildfire of Note. If you require updated information on this fire, please contact the Kamloops Fire Centre Information Team: KFCInfo@gov.bc.ca or 250-554-5965.
Due to significant effort from the BC Wildfire Service and provincial, First Nation, national and international partner agencies, much of the White Rock Lake wildfire (K61884) is Under Control. However, the fire burning above the Banks Creek Drainage has yet to burn its way down to the pre-established control line and therefore is not considered Under Control. This section of the fire will continue to burn freely and put up smoke until it reaches the control lines where crews can safely extinguish the fires edge. As a result, although much of the fire has already received sufficient suppression action to ensure no further spread, as of Sept. 10, the White Rock Lake wildfire has been reclassified back to Being Held.
The BC Wildfire Service thanks all personnel who supported response efforts throughout the duration of the White Rock Lake wildfire. Thank you all for your commitment, service, passion, empathy and courage.
