The BC Wildfire Service is preparing to conduct planned ignition operations on the Eagle Bluff wildfire to help gain containment on its northern perimeter.
The Province is restricting water use by select users on the Koksilah River to protect fish populations, which are under threat due to low water flows in the river.
The BC Wildfire Service will take a “modified response” approach to the northern flank of the Eagle Bluff wildfire, now that all appropriate planned ignitions to slow the spread of the fire have been completed.
Strong winds in the Cassiar Fire Zone on Tuesday, Aug. 13, 2019, prompted increased fire activity and caused two of the more prominent wildfires within the Northwest Fire Centre to grow.
