Kamloops Fire Rescue crews continued to monitor the scene this morning after dousing a vehicle fire in the Rose Hill area overnight
The vehicle had been abandoned, and the flames spread into surrounding brush, but crews managed to keep the blaze contained to an area of 15 by 25 meters.
“When they got there, they found that it spread to some nearby trees and grasses and sagebrush,” says Platoon Capt. Wade Lindoff. “There was a bit of work involved, as it got into the subsurface fuels and roots.”
Crews that went back this morning found some smoke still puffing up, so they’ll continue to keep an eye on it.
After two straight days of fires near the city, Kamloops Fire Rescue warns people to remain cautious heading into the long weekend.
“It’s still dry out there, we’re getting into the fall season and people tend to relax a little more thinking the main heat of the summer is over, but September can still be hot and dry and there’s a lot of fuel out there, so be careful with your fires, it can easily spread,” says Lindoff.
Kelowna Pest Control
The mild, rainy ocean climate has long been the envy of Canadians looking to escape the cold of more eastern provinces. But the conditions that make Kamloops appealing to humans are exactly the same that make it an ideal home for pests who wouldn’t be able to survive the cold dry winters further east.
The dense vegetation that covers much of Kamloops is home to a wealth of wildlife and associated pests that thrive in the temperate climate. As BC’s primary gateway to Pacific trade, Kamloops harbours also offer some unique challenges for pest control and require continuous monitoring and prevention to ensure that infestations don’t take hold.
There’s nothing quite as frustrating as a pest problem. They can become a huge issue, whether you’re a homeowner or a business manager.
