On Monday night, District of North Vancouver Fire & Rescue crews responded to a wildfire burning in Lynn Canyon near the Sea to Sky Trail.
DNVFRS and Metro Vancouver crews quickly suppressed the fire, and it is now considered "held," meaning it is not growing.
There is no public safety risk at this time. Due to this fire, the Sea to Sky Trail is closed between Inter River Park and the Baden Powell Trail south of Twin Falls Bridge. We ask the public to avoid this area so fire crews can do their work.
