Small forest fires south of Kelowna

A couple of small forest fires sparked up in the region over the weekend. 

Six firefighters from the BC Wildfire Service continue to work on a .63 hectare blaze about 10-kilometres south of Penticton. 

Fire Information Officer Justine Hunse says the fire is "being held" and no homes are threatened - there's no word yet on the cause.

The other fire, at .53 hectares in size, is near Garnet Lake - about 3-kilometres west of Highway 97 between Penticton and Summerland. 

Hunse says it's classified as "under control" - but three firefighters remain on the ground checking for hot spots.

She says the fire is believed to be human-caused.
