Tuesday, September 8, 2015 @ 3:45 AM

Prince George, B.C.-  For the send time in a week, there will be  fire training at YXS which could produce  a column of smoke visible throughout the community.

The training and certification exercise  involves  dealing with a simulated aviation  incident.  That means there will likely be  thick black smoke rising  from the  PG Airport Authority’s  fire training  area .

During previous fire training exercises,  concerned members of the public have spotted the smoke and  contacted  emergency services, but there is no need for  alarm.  The  simulation is taking place  in a controlled environment and it poses no threat to the public.

The exercise today  is slated to take place  from 11:30 this morning to  1p.m.
