Small wildfire burning out of control north of Lumby
A small wildfire, discovered Saturday, continues to burn out of control northeast of Lumby, in the Trinity Valley area.
The B.C. Wildfire Service originally said it suspected the 0.8-hectare blaze was human-caused, but now believes the fire was sparked by lightning.
A crew of six wildfire fighters responded to the blaze on Saturday and are back fighting the fire on Sunday.
The fire, near Bobby Burns Road, is not threatening any buildings.
The wildfire is more than 18 km from Lumby and more than 6 km from Mable Lake.
