A prescribed burn in southern Alberta this weekend.

A prescribed burn in southern Alberta this weekend, weather permitting. It'll affect about 60-hectares directly south of the Castle Mountain Ski Resort. Sustainable Resource Development says the burn will create a firebreak that will help protect nearby homes, infrastructure and the resort from wildfires. The forested area surrounding the prescribed burn will be closed for public safety and smoke may also settle in nearby valleys.
