The OFD provided structural protection and was assisted by ground and aircrews from BC Forestry to control and contain the fire.
We are currently in mop-up operations. It is unclear at this time if the fire was a result of the Nk’Mip fire jumping its current guard or if it was another cause.
A lot of the action is on Anarchist Mountain with many local fire personnel helping out
Lots of help to feed the local and out of town fire fighters .
