Fire on PIB lands


September 1, 2017

Around 3pm today, a human caused grass fire started close to Westhills Aggregates and the PIB Administration offices.  No structures were involved with the fire.  As of 4:30pm, the fire was contained and PIB Fire Department crew is on site monitoring hotspots.

PIB wishes to thank the following for their quick response and support:

  • Penticton Indian Band Fire Department
  • RDOS
  • City of Penticton
  • Ministry of Forests
  • PIB Chief and Council
  • Kaleden Fire Department
  • Naramata Fire Department

PIB would like to take this time to remind the public that there is a complete fire ban effect on all of PIB lands.  Also, due to the proximity of this fire to road ways, onlookers should not impede the flow of traffic and/or emergency vehicles.

Thanks from Penticton Indian Band
