Coldstream Creek

Post by madadam »

UPDATE: Crews and aircraft are responding to a new lightning-caused wildfire, west of Coldstream Creek, 15 kilometres southeast of Ashcroft and north of Highway 97C.

This fire is growing quickly and exhibiting aggressive fire behaviour. Hot, dry conditions and strong winds are challenging fire suppression efforts. The wildfire is estimated at 100 hectares and does not currently pose a threat to any communities. It is zero per cent contained.
