BC Wildfire Updates

Eagle Bluff

This fire is currently 2632.0 hectares. This will be the final update on Wildfires of Notes for this incident.

With cooler, wetter conditions fire activity has dropped to a level where the situation on site has had and will continue to have little change. The fire remains active in a being held status and is in modified response on the north flank. The fire might continue to produce smoke over the coming weeks.

The fire is mapped at 2,632 hectares in size. We are continuing to see a decrease in the amount of resources that are assigned to this incident as crews continue to patrol for hot spots and demobilize some gear and equipment from the fire.

The BC Wildfire Service is taking a modified response approach to the north flank of the fire. Modified response is a wildfire management strategy that uses a combination of suppression techniques and monitoring to steer, contain or otherwise manage fire activity within a predetermined perimeter. In consultation with land managers and other partners, it has been identified and decided to allow the fire to take its natural course while being monitored by the BC Wildfire Service. Containment lines and contingency lines have been completed around the perimeter of the fire. The fire will be closely monitored by the BC Wildfire Service using cameras, ground patrols and aerial scans as necessary. For more details, read the information bulletin here: http://bcfireinfo.for.gov.bc.ca/hprScripts/WildfireNews/DisplayArticle.asp?ID=3149

The areas of the fire that posed a threat to interface values on the west, east and south flanks has been fully suppressed and is currently in patrol status.

Today, crews will continue to mop up and patrol the fire on the west, east and south flanks. Their objective is to identify and extinguish hot spots within 200 feet of the fire perimeter. As these areas are patrolled and extinguished, crews will continue to be released from the fire.

An area restriction order for Crown land in the vicinity of the Eagle Bluff wildfire remains in place for the purpose of public safety and to ensure the safety of firefighting personnel. This order will remain in place until noon on August 30, 2019 or until it is rescinded. Please note, that this does not include Osoyoos I.R. No. 1 as it is not Crown land.
