Wildfire warning…and it’s not mid March yet

It’s only the second week of March and already the South East Fire Centre has had to respond to human-caused wildfires.

Information Officer Jordan Turner says on Monday there were four new fires … some of them pretty big.

In Greenwood a 4-person Initial Attack Crew came in to assist the fire department and RCMP with a 5-hectare grass fire that got out of control.

The other three fires were in rural parts of the East Kootenay and one of them was 15-hectares.

Turner says these incidents are a clear reminder of the current wildfire danger after the warm, dry late winter.
