Large fire being watched northeast of Fort Nelson

A large fire is currently being monitored northeast of Fort Nelson. According to the Prince George Fire Centre, a forest fire 150 hectares in size is currently burning northeast of Fort Nelson, which is being closely watched by local fire authorities.

Jillian Chimko of the Prince George Fire Centre believes the fire was caused by lighting and says it does not pose a high risk, as it is located in a modified response zone, meaning the Centre is not actively suppressing it because it is not threatening any neighboring communities.

The fire is close to gas plant, located 5 kilometers away from the scene, but Chimko says the fire is moving in the opposite direction of the plant and therefore poses no risk.

The gas plant has been notified of the fire, and sprinklers have been set up along the border of the facility just in case the fire begins to move closer.

Upon discovering the fire on Thursday, July 5, air tankers were used to ensure the fire did not spread into any populated areas.

Currently the fire is only burning in what Chimko describes as a low value area and is moving into an area which was burned out back in 2003.

Despite the lack of high concern, the Fire Centre will constantly be assessing and monitoring the blaze to ensure it burns safely.
