After five years of pine beetle control on Merritt's north side there's far less potential for fire.

Merritt Emergency Preparedness Coordinator and forestry expert Tom Lacey says the open forest is providing far greater fire protection for Merritt.

Lacey says the work to reduce the fuels and protect the community will continue in the Spring.

He says he'll be working with the Fire Department in conducting some under burns to manage the fuels again this year.
