The Coastal Fire Centre is dealing with a new wildfire near Sechelt.
Fire Information officer Marg Drysdale “We do have a fire in Sechelt. We have two initial attack crews and two helicopters on site. Our crews have not been on the fire very long. They have reported back the fire is a half a hectare in size.”
Drysdale says the hope is to jump on it early and get it under control before it becomes serious.
She says there have been a number of new fires, lightning and human caused, in the Coastal Fire Centre recently.
It looks like one of them is in Nanaimo pictures on social media show a viscious little blaze burning there right now as well.
