Buntzen Lake灌木丛起火

海岸防火中心依然在监视周六早上在前BC Hydro power station附近的灌木丛起火时间的最新动态。

发言人Marg Drysdale说大概有0.2平方公顷的灌木丛因为人为原因引发失火。救火队在上午十点左右接到电话赶到现场。

温哥华警察局也协助了救火,大火直到周日上午才被扑灭。

Drysdale说救火队将会继续监控着火区域,保证没有新的危险。

“如果什么都没有”,“我们就会撤退”。Drysdale 说。

这个区域的火灾突然一下子烧了起来,Hydro发言人Mora Scott说。他说野营火堆在Buntzen Lake野营区那里是不允许的。他说火势并没有影响到公园的安全,因为事发地点与公园有大概十公里的距离。但是公园还是提前关闭以便于救援紧急车辆可以停靠。他说Hydeo关门的时候停车位都快满了。

BC Hydro对此事表示严肃关注,并且监控野营的火堆情况以便避免此类事件。

森林火灾严重程度取决与不同的区域,根据野生森林管理协会的回答,在Lower Mainland火险等级为中等。


Crews with the Coastal Fire Center are continuing to monitor the area of a small brush fire that broke out Saturday morning near an old BC Hydro power station on Indian Arm.

Spokesperson Marg Drysdale  said the .2 hectare fire was human caused and crews were called in about 10 a.m. to support the Sasamat volunteer fire department.

The Vancouver Police Department marine unit also assisted and by the end of the day the fire was out although fire fighters returned to the scene Sunday for mop up and patrols.

Drysdale said crews will continue to patrol the area to make sure there are no hot spots.

If there are none, "they'll declare it out," Drysdale said.

The area where the brush fire occurred is out of bounds, according to Hydro spokesperson Mora Scott, who added that campfires are not even allowed in the picnic area at nearby Buntzen Lake. She said the fire didn't endanger the public at nearby Buntzen Lake park — less than 10 km from the blaze — but the parking lot was closed down early as a precaution so emergency vehicles could have access. She said Hydro typically closes the gates when the parking lot is full and the lot was nearly filled when it was closed around 1 p.m.

BC Hydro takes seriously its concerns about no open burning or campfires and will be increasing signage and stepping up patrols, Scott said.

The fire danger rating in the coastal area varies depending on the region, according to the Wildlife Management Branch, ranging from low to high, with the Lower MaInland in the moderate range, according to the map.

Other than saying it was human caused, the BC Wildfire Management Branch isn't saying what exactly caused the fire because the investigation is continuing.
