Little Bobtail Lake Fire 100% Contained
Prince George, B.C.- The Little Bobtail Lake fire is now 100% contained after crews worked long and hard yesterday to patrol and mop up any hot spots around the perimeter of the fire.An evacuation order remains in effect for areas of the Bulkley Nechako regional District. That order will remain in effect while crews work to remove dangerous trees and remove sprinkler units.
While the fire is contained, the Wildfire Management Branch still has more than 200 crew working on this fire.
The public is advised to avoid areas ain and around the fire due to heavy equipment operations in the area. With the aggressive fire behavior observed last week on the fire, this has resulted in deep burning conditions. These conditions have weakened root systems of trees within the wildfire area.
Today, crews will continue to be supported by helicopters bucketing on the Little Bobtail Lake wildfire.
