The BC Wildfire Service is saying this fire that started last night (July 20) from a lightning strike was confirmed, but is now out without every really having gotten going.
The BC Wildfire Service is trying to confirm a blaze just south of the Smithers Community Forest Recreation Site.
The fire was reported last night with a suspected cause of a lightning strike and is listed as 0.01 hectares in size and out of control.
“They flew over it last night, but were unable to confirm an active fire,” said Morgan Blois, an information officer with the Northwest Fire Centre.
She said it would be reassessed later today.
