Finlay Creek Wildfire now 100% contained

The Finlay Creek Wildfire is now 100% contained.

Fire Information Officer Heather Rice explains. 

"So now our primary function is to continue to put out hot-spots," says Rice. "We did have the fire scanned, and that will help the firefighters focus their efforts on the hot-spots that the scan was able to identify." 

Rice says crews will continue to work on those hot spots over the next few weeks.

She credits hard work from fire crews and good weather as primary reasons they were able to get the upper hand on the fire.
