What’s being called a “hold-over” wildfire was discovered just after 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 15 at ‘Lesser Canoe Creek’ near Salmon Arm.
“It is a holdover fire that’s popped up under current conditions,” said Taylor Colman, fire information officer with BC Wildfire Service, explaining it’s an old fire that’s flared up.
She said a three-person crew is en route, but she understands the fire consists of smouldering in a couple of piles.
More information will be provided once the crew arrives, when they will be determining if more equipment or possibly assistance from the air is needed, she said.
Colman estimated that it is about six kilometres east of the shore of Shuswap Lake at Salmon Arm.
