The B.C. Wildfire Service is already urging caution after responding to another grass fire in the Kamloops Fire Centre Tuesday afternoon this one near the Lafarge cement plant.
Fire Information Officer Jody Lucius says they don’t know yet what sparked the grass fire out in the Campbell Creek area..
But Lucius says despite snow still layering some areas others have tinder dry grass and other fuels so people need to be careful when throwing away cigarette butts.
“So this is considered a spot fire, which means it didn’t grow very much at all. Last I spoke with them it was 80% contained so we are not expecting any further growth on it.”
There have already been at least two grass fires near Lytton in this fledgling wildfire season.
The province is of course one summer removed from the worst wildfire season on record.
