DELTA – Crews from Delta, Metro Vancouver and BC Wildfire Services that have been fighting the Burns Bog fire are now leaving, with the fire fully contained.

A small Metro Vancouver Parks patrol will continue to monitor the site, should anything change.

Delta Fire says it co-ordinate an aerial scan using a thermal imaging camera this week to look for any areas of concern.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but fire Chief Dan Copeland said last week that weather is not considered a factor.

The fire began July 3 and scorched 78 hectares.

Most of Burns Bog is closed to the public, but the approximately 60-hectare Delta Nature Reserve is open for viewing.
