Over 15 mm of rain from Tuesday night until five o’clock this morning was the advantage needed for the approximately 60 fire fighters who have now fully controlled the Osborne River Wildfire in the Cecil Lake area.

At its peak, the lightning-caused fire covered 348 hectares but, as the Prince George Fire Centre points out again, because it is in a remote area it did not threaten any communities or infrastructures.

Meanwhile, spokesperson Jillian Chimko says the recent rain has also allowed the Centre to drop its Fire Dangerrating to Low or Very Low. She says that during the past week, 13 new fire starts were reported, 2 of which were due to human causes, while the rest were the result of lightning strikes. The Osborne River fire was by far the largest of the group.
