Wildfire update

Cooler weather is on the way for the province and firefighters hope that will give them a bit of a respite from wildfires that have been sparked by the dozen every day over the past several weeks.

About 200 active wildfires are chewing through B.C.’s backcountry, with more than 2,300 square kilometres of woodland burned by 945 wildfires since the season began.

The Puntzi Lake wildfire, 130km west of Williams Lake, isn’t yet under control, but the good news is that it didn’t grow either since yesterday.

Kelsey Winter is with the Cariboo Wildfire Centre.

The province remains on high alert for wildfires, with 15 new fires starting since yesterday.
