Firefighters don’t anticipate any difficulty in extinguishing it

The other fire, located by the northern arm of Quesnel Lake, is currently listed at 0.1 hectares and is believed to have been caused by lightning. According to Jessica Mack, the Fire Information Officer with the Cariboo Fire Centre, there are currently six firefighters and one helicopter on site.
