Another wildfire of note is burning within in the Cariboo region.
The Comstock Lake fire in the Batnuni Lake area and around 10 1/2 kilometres from Titletown is now estimated at 27-hundred hectares in size.
Forrest Tower, an Information Officer with the BC Wildfire Service, says they’re still working on getting some containment on that fire…
“As far as the Comstock Lake and the 600 fire, we don’t have a containment percentage as of now, but there is a lot of heavy equipment heading out there in the next couple of days, that’s sort of the objective we’re working towards.”
Tower says neither fire is threatening any structures at this stage and he says there hasn’t been a lot of activity over the past couple of days due to the weather…
“All three fires are currently not showing any growth. This is due to the rain we’ve had over the last couple of days. The weather stations we have around the fires picked up around 11 millimeters of precipitation, and as well as the cooler temperatures it has sort of stagnated any growth.”
Tower says the fire, 15 kilometers northwest of Batnuni Lake, is approximately 150 hectares in size.
The other wildfire in the area, which is about 69 hectares, is 22.5 kilometers northeast of Comstock Lake.
