British Columbia: Wildfire season in B-C appears to be off to an early and explosive start.
Several wildfires were reported in B-C’s central Interior and Cariboo regions, with the Quesnel-area Burgess Creek fire being the largest blaze of the young season.
The B-C Wildfire Service says the Burgess Creek wildfire, located about 45 kilometers south of Quesnel, is listed as out of control and expanded from about half-a-kilometre in size to 16 square kilometers over the weekend.
The Wildfire Service also says new fires were reported in the Vanderhoof and Fraser Lake areas.
