Rainfall over the weekend helped suppress wildfire growth in the Peace region, according to the BC Wildfire Service.

All wildfires in northeast B.C. are classified as under control or being held. The Pine River, Tentfire Creek and Bear Hole Lake fires were also removed from the BC Wildfire Service dashboard as wildfires of note.

As of Monday, the Pine River fire is 2,542 hectares in size, the fire near Bear Hole Lake is being held at 2,769 hectares, and the Tentfire Creek fire covers 3,148 hectares.

Sharon Nickel, with B.C. Wildfire Services, says some areas in the Prince George Fire Centre (PGFC) saw up to 80 millimetres of rain over the weekend. Fort St. John had around 40 mm.

Nickel says each fire has around the same number of personnel as last week that are monitoring for potential hotspots.

The evacuation alert issued by the Peace River Regional District on August 15th was rescinded Monday.

There are currently 54 active wildfires in the PGFC.
