Partial closures of two local provincial parks
Effective immediately, areas beyond 50 metres of developed portions of Kikomun Creek Provincial Park and Premier Lake Provincial Park (pictured above) are closed to the public.
Areas within 50 metres of the developed portions of the park campgrounds, day-use areas and service yard, including park access roads, remain open.
Wildfires are dynamic and circumstances may change quickly. BC Parks and the BC Wildfire Service will continue to monitor and assess the situation to help protect public safety. Should the need arise, additional provincial park closures may be implemented, a Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development and BC Wildfire Service press release outlined.
BC Parks and the BC Wildfire Service ask the public for their continued vigilance in preventing human-caused wildfires and reporting wildfires. To report a wildfire or open burning violation, call *5555 on a cellphone or 1 800 663-5555 toll-free.
