Wildfire that forced Fort Nelson evacuation now ‘under control,’ officials say | Globalnews.ca


The wildfire that forced 4,700 people to leave their homes in Fort Nelson, B.C., is now listed as “under control. “

The BC Wildfire Service says in a social media statement that the 123-square-kilometre fire in northeastern B.C. is not expected to grow beyond its current boundary.
Rain and cooler temperatures have allowed crews to reduce the wildfire, which is mainly smouldering in the ground, although the service says residents can still expect to see smoke coming from the perimeter.
