Kamloops, BC—In the past 24 hours, there have been four fires on Tḱemlúps te Secwépemc (TteS) lands. Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) responded to a fire at approximately 3:37 am on April 12, 2021. KFR utilized two engines, two bush trucks, and one water tender to fight the fires. TteS Natural Resources and Planning and Engineering departments also provided resources to combat the fire, including two 1,000 gallon water trailers, one front-end loader, one excavator and five members from the Natural Resource department.

The fires pose no danger to the public. TteS and KFR are concerned about the fires as they have been deemed suspicious in nature. TteS Kúkpi7 Rosanne Casimir and KFR Fire Chief Steve Robinson have been in contact and will be meeting with RCMP to try to understand how best to prevent future fires.

TteS and KFR are committed to working together to ensure the safety of all residents.

Thank you to all who helped to keep TteS safe.
