The wildfires burning near Quesnel did not experience any growth over the weekend.

The only fire in the North Cariboo region that saw substantial growth yesterday was the Tautri complex.
It is now estimated at around 40 thousand hectares, up from 25 yesterday, although the BC Wildfire Service says there is a lot of smoke from that fire making it difficult to accurately say how big it is.
