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
- 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
