Prince George, B.C. –  The BC Wildfire Service has 20 crewmembers and  a water tender  putting out hotspots in the Norman  Lake fire.

The evacuation alert for  about 250 residences in the area  was rescinded last night  once   fire fighting crews had  completely contained the blaze which started Friday afternoon.

The 7 hectare fire was burning  about 2 kms northwest of Norman Lake,  the cause remains under investigation.

“Crews are  mopping up  the  area now” says Prince George Fire Centre spokesperson Amanda Reynolds, “The rain has already started in the area and that’s good news too.”

Reynolds says there was a small spot fire in the Vanderhoof area,  but Reynolds says  it too should be out shortly.
