Whistler – The Blackcomb Mountain fire is now 100 per cent contained, officials announced late Sunday (Aug. 2).
In a statement issued Sunday at 9:49 p.m., the B.C. Ministry of Forests and Whistler Fire Rescue Service (WFRS) jointly announced that the fire — which burned something like 30 hectares on the east side of Crystal Ridge, just inside the ski-area boundary — fully contained. Blackcomb Mountain is now safe for WB to resume full operations, officials said.
“The Ministry’s initial attack was highly effective and we would like to thank them, along with Whistler Blackcomb staff, for their quick response in containing what could have been a very dangerous fire situation,” WFRS Chief Rob Whitton said in the statement.
