The Mount Law fire which started on the afternoon of Aug 15th near the visitor centre on the Coquihalla Connector came close to Telemark just to the South and East of the Panorama ski trail. The fire threatened a good portion of the Glenrosa neighborhood and many homes were under evacuation order.
Thanks to more favorable weather conditions and the hard work of BC Wildfire crews and local fire departments the fire is mainly under control now and no longer a threat to Telemark or most others in the area. Thanks to all the amazing workers who helped keep the fire under control. It sounds like some people in the area below Telemark on the roads off of Glenrosa Rd have had some fire damage to their homes. Our sympathies go out to our Glenrosa neighbors who lost property.
If you come up to Telemark for a hike, bike ride or horseback ride this summer please remember the high fire hazard and be extra careful.
