Anarchist Mountain Fire DepartmentThe car involved here is a Ferrari 360 Modena which are known to overheat and catch fire unless very specific (and expensive) maintenance is performed on a regular basis. Going uphill on Hwy 3 in our area puts a strain on engines hence the reason we see quite a few car fires.

Anarchist Mountain Fire DepartmentSometimes a fire of this type allows for very little reaction time. We would like to thank the vehicle driver for leaving the vehicle in the traveled portion of the roadway and not pulling completely off the road. Although that might sound like the safer thing to do, remaining in the travelled portion will greatly help to prevent the fire spreading to the extremely dry grass.

At least the fire didn't spread to the brush!

FIRE DANGER RATING IS AT LEVEL 4

With the extremely dry conditions currently, we would like to ask that all area residents cease any outdoor burning. Although an official fire ban is not yet in place, we would like to remind everyone that you are responsible for any fires you undertake and may be liable for any costs involved should fire services be required to extinguish them.

With warm and sunny conditions expected to occur over much of the province this weekend, the BC Wildfire Service would like to remind anyone heading into the outdoors to be cautious and do their part to help avoid human-caused wildfires. The Fire Danger Rating is currently moderate with pockets of high across most of the province, meaning forest fuels are drying and there is an increased risk of fires starting. If you are planning to conduct open burning or have a campfire this weekend, make sure you are burning in appropriate conditions, never leave a fire unattended, and keep appropriate tools on hand to extinguish the fire. This weekend is also a great opportunity for you to do some FireSmart landscaping to help make your home and community more resilient to wildfire. Clearing dead debris from gutters and roofs, ensuring woodpiles are at least 10 metres away from your home and other structures, and keeping grass short are all cost-neutral activities that will help better prepare you for the upcoming fire season. To read the FireSmart Homeowners manual, visit: ow.ly/sh3n30oHvph For a list of current bans and prohibitions, visit: ow.ly/VQHs30oHuOl For a poster on campfire regulation, visit: ow.ly/SeUR30oHuPo More information about FireSmart is availalable at: firesmartbc.ca/

I really don't miss this about BC.

Did you ever wonder why fire hydrants are painted different colours? If painted correctly, this is done so firefighters know how much water is available. ... See MoreSee Less
