A B.C. First Nation continues to move ahead with fire rehabilitation work south of Burns Lake following devastating wildfires two years ago.

The Cheslatta Carrier Nation is removing fire damaged trees so that the wood can be used after receiving a $1.25-million grant from the Forest Enhancement Society of B.C which will help their wholly-owned Cheslatta Forest Products cover the costs of shipping the residual fibre to a pellet plant or bio-energy facility.
