The burn site is around three kilometres northeast of Winlaw. Smoke may impact residents close to the burn area and be visible from surrounding communities and along highway 6.
The exact timing of the burn depends on weather and site conditions, but it could begin as early as Thursday. The Southeast Fire Centre says burning will proceed if conditions are suitable and allow for smoke dispersal, though light smoke may also linger in the following days.
The goal of the burn is to improve community wildfire protection by reducing fuels.
