Fire Contained On Burnaby Mountain

Posted 1:50 PM July 5, 2015

The Burnaby Fire Department has contained a small brush fire that broke out this morning on the north slope of Burnaby Mountain. Crews will be maintaining a presence in the area for the duration.

No evacuation orders have been issued. Residents affected by the smoke are to close their windows or may choose to leave the area. Delays and rerouting for transit services are expected due to road closures in the area. Using the hiking trails are not recommended at the moment. Park users are reminded to use care and attention during these extreme fire danger conditions. Please visit the Simon Fraser University Road Report web page for updated information.

Air Quality Advisory

Metro Vancouver has issued an Air Quality Advisory for Metro Vancouver because of high concentrations of fine particulate matter and potential health impacts, due to smoke from wildfires outside our region. This advisory is expected to continue until there is a change in the current weather.

Eco-sculpture Sponsorship

Eco-sculpture Sponsorship

Corporate and community support is critical to Burnaby’s Eco-sculpture program. Without it, innovative projects of this scale rarely make that leap of faith and imagination that turns drawing-board dreams into reality.  

Eco-sculpture, which appeals to all age groups but particularly to children, is not only fun and educational, it’s perfect for drawing attention to environmental issues. As well, these living, 3-D sculptures have enormous tourism potential for the city. All of which explains why the program has been greeted with keen interest by a broad range of partners.
