Fire crews extinguish Peavine Creek wildfire
TUMBLER RIDGE -- The Peavine Creek wildfire has been put out after threatening the town of Kelly Lake in early June.
It was extinguished on Monday after burning at 4,427 hectares in size.
The Prince George Fire Centre said a number factors like cooler temperatures, rain, more resources on scene and support from firefighters outside of Canada helped to call out the fire.
The Peavine Creek wildfire was reported on June 6th, 5 kilometers south of Tomslake.
Above seasonal temperatures, dry conditions and wind increased fire behaviour.
It had shut down highway 52 and prompted a number of Evacuation Alerts and Orders.
The Peavine Creek wildfire was finally held on July 2nd.
