Small Wildfire In The Narrows Area Now Being Held

A small wildfire found on Monday burning near the Narrows of Shuswap Lake is no cause for concern.

It's just East of the Narrows, and never reached a hectare in size.

Information Officer Brenna Ward notes that crews have the upper-hand, saying "It has been classified now as being held, which means that it's in a very spot and is not expected to spread."

The cause has yet to be confirmed, with Ward saying "Human-suspected, but obviously the exact cause will be determined after an investigation."

Ward says that several firefighters and a helicopter were on scene on Monday
