Nadina Lake and Verdun Mountain fires continue to pose threats

The Nadina Lake and Verdun Mountain wildfires continue to represent the biggest threat of those included in the Babine Complex.

Measuring at over 72 thousand hectares, the Nadina Lake fire is now the second largest in BC after a series of cutblocks had crews tied up on the west flank today.

Visibility continues to be a problem on the northern parts of the fire as crews build lines today to try and prevent proximity issues with the Verdun fire.

The Verdun wildfire is currently covering 14 thousand hectares, but seems to be holding at Keefe Landing Road near an old burn scar.

A guard was completed near the north end of Tatalaska Lake yesterday.

There are currently more than 350 personnel and 142 pieces of heavy equipment battling the Babine Complex of fires with support from 17 helicopters.
