After a week of fighting the Little Bobtail Fire, crews have managed to contain 20% of the 17,000 hectare blaze.
A blaze the size of around 42 Stanley Parks.
Fire Information Officer Jill Kelsh with the Prince George Fire Centre says there are more than 300 people currently working on the fire, which is burning south west of Prince George.
“The fire area was dead standing timber which is a lot more flammable than live standing timber.”
Kelsh says the cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it may have been human caused.
