The Open Fire Tracking System (OFTS) Data contains active Burn Registration Numbers that are used to track all large burning projects, for both private property burns and forestry industry burns, throughout the province. Clients register their burns with their property information, number of piles/size of area they are burning, their specific location and contact information. This dataset is a record of all the active burns and can be cross referenced if there is a fire report in the area. This information allows users to determine if a fire report is a wildfire or if is a controlled burn.

This data is sourced internally from the BC Wildfire Service and is not available for download at this time.
