Fire Visible from Tumbler Ridge
Tumbler Ridge, B.C. – A fire burning 30 km west of Tumbler Ridge has the attention of the Prince George Fire Centre.
Fire information officer Jill Kelsh says the five hectare Bullmoose fire is visible from Tumbler Ridge and Highway 29 but due to dangerous terrain and a lack of safe accessibility, is currently considered a modified response fire.
And though it’s expected to grow, she says the fire is not currently threatening any values, including a gas plant two and a half km downhill from the fire.
She says once the fire reaches a point where crews can safely access it, then suppression efforts will be launched.
