Gusty winds complicate B.C. wildfire fight, but human-caused blazes also a factor

  • Unsettled weather and strong winds in British Columbia led to multiple wildfires and evacuation orders in several districts over the weekend.
  • Evacuation orders were issued for areas affected by the Glen Lake fire near Peachland, the Horn Lake fire near Williams Lake, the Clowhom Lake fire near Sechelt, and the Stoddart Creek fire near Fort St. John. In total, 54 rural properties were affected.
  • Additionally, the Downton Lake blaze threatened the South Chilcotin Mountain Park, leading to evacuation alerts for properties in that area. The BC Wildfire Service reported over 400 active fires, with seven new fires started in the past 24 hours.
