Black Mountain Burn

johnboy 4 March 2011 3

Territory And Municipal Services are warning that they’re going to be burning off the top of Black Mountain on Monday:

Like in all controlled burns, safety will be of paramount importance. Experienced fire managers, supported by trained fire-fighters, will conduct the burning operations. Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burns in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.

Was there a burn going on on Saturday, or was that one accidental?

We just noticed it out the window, looks like a pretty hot fire. Good day for it: low temps, no wind. From the east it looks like it’s just to the lake-side of the Tower.

The burn is under way now. Kind of spooky seeing smoke coming from all around the tower itself. Have sent a photo through.
