BC Wildfire Service crews are responding to a blaze near Humamilt Lake northwest of Seymour Arm.
The .5-hectare wildfire was discovered Tuesday afternoon, July 11. Lightning was the suspected cause of ignition.
On Wednesday morning, July 12, eight BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) personnel were dispatched to the out-of-control fire along with heavy equipment and one helicopter.
On the same morning, 20 BCWS personnel were responding to another blaze southwest of the Humamilt fire. Discovered on July 9, the Snuffbox Creek wildfire was also classified as out of control. However, since its discovery, the size of the fire had been downsized from 15 hectares to 7.4. BCWS explained this was a result of the smoke clearing, allowing for a more accurate estimate.
