North of Vernon

Post by Frisk »

Fire crews from Armstrong and the provincial government are responding to a wildfire burning off Highway 97, about 15 kilometres north of Vernon.

Fire information officer Kelsey Winter said the fire is currently about a half a hectare in size and is showing Rank 2 and Rank 3 fire behaviour.

The province has responded with two initial attack crews – one coming by ground, the other by air.

Air tankers have also been dispatched.

Castanet will have more details as they become available.

Anyone have better information on this one? These winds can't be good.
