Safety
Though there is no imminent threat of wildfire, other hazards may be present. Hazards include burnt trees with failing root systems, hydrophobic soil prone to erosion, increased traffic on roadways and ongoing suppression activities. Read the Hazards resulting from the Battleship Mountain wildfire (G72150) article on BCWildfire.ca.

Nearby communities can still expect to see smoke within the fire's perimeter over the coming weeks. This is common with large wildfires, and smoke will continue to be visible until there is significant rainfall at the site. Smoke appearing from well within the fire perimeter and burned material is common. However, smoke that rises from green, unburned fuel or from outside of fire's perimeter should be reported. To report a wildfire or open burning violation, call 1 800 663-5555 toll-free or *5555 on a cellphone.
