The Lindmark prescribed burn is 20 kilometres up the parkway. Parks Canada closed the parkway and summit area trails to light the fire in the early afternoon on October 12.
In a report, Parks Canada said fire management specialists began burning along the southern edge of the prescribed fire perimeter on October 13. The report said that despite dry conditions, the forest fuels were not burning well enough to proceed with igniting the Lindmark prescribed burn.
The Meadows in the Sky Parkway re-opened the following day and is expected to remain open until the end of October, weather permitting. Smoke may still be visible from Mount Revelstoke for the next several days.
