Nine new fire starts in the Cariboo

The Cariboo Fire Centre had its hands full with fire activity over the long weekend.

Crews responded to nine new wildfires, but all were kept small and put out quickly thanks to timely reports from the public.

Officials say the largest lightning fire was about three hectares west of Anahim Lake, but crews had it put out by Monday afternoon.

The six other lightning-caused fires, three of them in the Big Bar area, are all out or in the patrol phase.

The fire centre says there were two human-caused fires near Highway 20 and northwest of Puntzi Lake.

Crews have also managed to contain 100 per cent of the Pelican Lake wildfire which is now in the patrol stage.
